Bantamweight Pannie Kianzad is one of the highest ranked Swedish UFC fighters, but dropped quite significantly in the rankings after this past weekend’s submission loss to Macy Chiasson. The bout was a rematch from their first fight in the finals of The Ultimate Fighter season 28 in 2018.

The Swedish 32-year-old is currently 1-3 in her last fights, with back-to-back losses against Ketlen Vieira and Chiasson. She has 5-4 in the UFC with wins against the likes of Lina Länsberg, Sijara Eubanks and Bethe Correia.
