<p><a href="http://www.ufc.com/news/PVZ-Returns-in-Vancouver-on-Aug-27">Paige VanZant is set to make her return</a> against Bec Rawlings at UFC on FOX 21 in August.</p>
<p>The 22-year old breakout star recently took time off of MMA to compete on ABC’s <em>Dancing with the Stars</em> where she was able to reach the finals alongside her partner, Mark Ballas. Her last fight was a fifth-round submission loss to Rose Namajunas in what turned out to be a lopsided matchup that saw an impressive display of heart by VanZant. The loss snapped VanZant’s four-fight winning streak which consisted of dominant wins over the likes of Felice Herrig and Alex Chambers.</p>
<p>Coming off of a unanimous decision win over Seo Hee Ham in her home-country of Australia, Bec Rawlings (7-4) managed to get herself back on track after a rough start to her UFC career. Rawlings was signed by the promotion after competing unsuccessfully on the season 20 of <em>The Ultimate Fighter</em> where she was eliminated in her first bout after losing to Tecia Torres. She made her official debut against Heather Jo Clark and lost via unanimous decision but went on to submit Lisa Ellis in the first round at UFC Fight Night 65 in Adelaide, Australia.</p>
<p>UFC on FOX 21 is set to take place at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia on August 27. Also on the card is Anthony Pettis who will be making his featherweight debut against Charles Oliveira. No main event has been announce yet.</p>
