My next fight is against the winner of the 125 division Ultimate Fighter. Don’t blink.

Despite not competing yet in 2017 and coming off a loss to Michelle Waterson, Paige VanZant appears to be the No. 1 contender in the UFC’s newly-created flyweight division.
VanZant posted on Twitter Saturday night that she will meet the winner of The Ultimate Fighter 26, which is currently in the quarterfinal round as they work to crown a champion in the division.
