Pannie “Banzai” Kianzad (13-5 MMA, 2-2 UFC)

Bantamweight (135lbs): 2-1 (UFC)

Featherweight(145lbs): Finalist on The Ultimate Fighter Season 28

Kianzad stands at 5’7″ and is 29 years old. Pannie has been fighting at as high as the featherweight division since she began her pro career back in 2012. Kianzad has faced solid competition in her career and won a Bantamweight Championship with the Cage Warrors promotion in 2014.

Pannie Kianzad is a veteran of The Ultimate Fighter Season 28, in which she lost the tournmanet Championship to Macy Chiasson in November of 2018. Pannie has faced some solid competition in her pro career both at featherweight and bantamweight.  However, Pannie has not fought at 145lbs since the TUF finale and it looks like the bantamweight division is where she will stay for the foreseeable future?
