The UFC will hold an event April 30 – and it already has its first fight on the books.
A women’s flyweight matchup between Gina Mazany and Shanna Young is the first known addition to the event, which does not currently have a location or venue.
Wednesday, two people with knowledge of the booking informed MMA Junkie of the matchup but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.
No other fights have been announced for the card at this time.
Mazany (7-5 MMA, 2-5 UFC) will look to reenter the win column after a loss to Priscila Cachoeira at UFC 262 in May. Mazany lost that fight via TKO late in Round 2. Since her return to the UFC in June 2020, Mazany is 1-2 with a TKO victory over Rachael Ostovich.
Young (7-4 MMA, 0-2 UFC), on the other hand, will drop to flyweight for this fight after the back-to-back losses that kicked off her UFC tenure. After a short-notice, unanimous decision loss to Macy Chiasson in her February 2020 debut, Young was finished via strikes at the hands of Stephanie Egger in October.
