Ostovich has beaten VanZant. The Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship 19 event took place Friday night at the Florida State Fairgrounds. The decision was unanimous, with 48-47, 48-47, and 49-46 from the judges.
This was a rematch from January 2019 MMA. They met at UFC Fight Night 143, and VanZant won the contest then. After that, there was another round. Both of these rounds were very tiring and competitive. Ostovich got on VanZant, and then they both started doing incredible exchanges. We got clean shots from the clinch, and the contest was amazing.
The third round found Ostovich ahead. VanZant couldn’t really find the target, as Ostovich was on her at all times. VanZant got back at her at times, but it was a clear deal that Ostovich was ahead. She managed even to make VanZant be amazed, especially in the last four minutes.
VanZant is now 0-2 after leaving the UFC and getting into BKFC. And this was Ostovich’s first fight after leaving the UFC. This happened in late 2020.
