Mariya Agapova returns quickly to fight Shana Dobson on UFC’s August 22nd show. First reported by Raphael Marinho of Combate, the fight comes to fruition after Agapova called out Dobson in June.
Agapova made her UFC debut in June, getting a quick win over Hannah Cifers that also earned her a performance bonus.
“Shana Dobson stop running away from me. Let’s go fight here,” said Agapova after the fight, quickly shifting her focus to her next opponent.
“Danger” Dobson has lost her last three, with the most recent coming against Priscila Cachoeira in February. The 3-4 flyweight will look to even her professional record in August.
The only other bout scheduled for UFC’s August 22nd is a strawweight bout between Mizuki and Amanda Lemos. The card currently does not have a location or main event scheduled for it. The card looks like this.
Bout 2: Mizuki (14-5) vs. Amanda Lemos (7-1-1) (Strawweight)
