A women’s flyweight bout marks the first addition to the UFC’s April 30 Fight Night event.

Fighting at the previously unannounced card will be Gina Mazany (7-5) and Shanna Young (7-4). MMA Junkie was first to report news of the match-up on Wednesday. Mazany later confirmed the booking on social media.

Mazany has been trading wins and losses across her last four fights, and has posted a 1-1 record since moving to flyweight in 2020. “Danger” defeated Rachael Ostovich with body kicks when she debuted in the weight class, but was finished herself at UFC 262 last year by Priscila Cachoeira.

Training with Glory MMA and Fitness under James Krause these days, Gina Mazany entered the UFC an undefeated 4-0 back in 2016. Prior to joining the big show, she had fought only sporadically, making her pro debut in 2008, fighting once the following year, then stepping away until 2013.

Invicta FC veteran Young (7-4) will be looking to snap a two-fight losing streak come April. “The Shannimal” dropped her UFC debut to Macy Chiasson in 2020, then followed that up with a TKO loss at the hands of Stephanie Egger last year. Both those bouts came at bantamweight, but Young did compete as a flyweight prior to joining the UFC.

The April 30, 2022 show is expected to be a Fight Night event. No location, venue, or broadcast plan has been officially announced.
