The rematch between Paige VanZant and Racheal Ostovich has been made official for BKFC 19 on July 23rd
This marks VanZant's second Bare Knuckle bout, after headlining Knucklemania, February 6th vs Britain Hart
Ostovich signed to the promotion back in April and this will be her Bare Knuckle FC debut
“I am so excited to fight in the fastest growing sport in the world, “ she said. “I'm looking forward to my debut in July. I have seen and heard great things about BKFC, and am very happy to be a part of the team. Can't wait to announce the opponent! "
VanZant earned a UFC victory over Ostovich via 2nd round armbar back in 2019 so this will be seen as a rematch but, of course, there will be no grappling July 23rd
Both VanZant and BKFC President David Feldman hinted at the prospect of this bout back in April, so it's been speculated since
This is the first bout that has been announced to take place at BKFC 19
