Mariya Agapova has gotten her want.
Agapova (9-1) will confront Shana “Danger” Dobson (3-4) on August 22.
Kazakhstan’s Agapova built a significant impact in her promotional debut at UFC Vegas 2– finishing Hannah Cifers in the first round of their flyweight matchup and successful a $50k ‘Performance of the Night’ reward for her attempts. Prior to signing with the UFC, Agapova rebounded from a decline on the Contender Sequence with two straight very first spherical finishes in Invicta.
Dobson entered the UFC just after competing on TUF 26, scoring a TKO gain around Ariel Beck in her to start with formal physical appearance in 2017. She now rides a a few-combat skid with losses to Lauren Mueller, Sabina Mazo and Priscila Cachoeira.
