Rising flyweight star Erin Blanchfield is booked for an new pivotal fight.

On August 26 in Singapore she will take on former title challenger Taila Santos in a important fight for the women’s flyweight division. The news of the matchup was first reported by Freak MMA.

The pair were previously expected to fight in February, however, Santos pulled out from the fight after one of her corner members couldn’t get into the US.

Blanchfield rides an eight-fight winning streak and is undefeated in the UFC with wins against fighters like Jessica Andrade, Molly McCann and Miranda Maverick.

The fight will be Santos’ first return to action after challenging  Valentina Shevchenko for the title at UFC 275 in June 2022.
