Swedish bantamweight Pannie Kianzad returns to UFC action on March 16 to fight Macy Chiasson in a rematch in Las Vegas.

The pair fought as featherweights for the title of “The Ultimate Fighter 28″ in November 2018 with Chiasson standing as the winner by a second-round submission.

Kianzad most recently competed in July when she lost a tough unanimous decision to Ketlen Vieira. She’s now ranked at No. 6 in the women’s bantamweight rankings.

Chiasson has not fought since a loss to Irene Aldana back in September 2022 and currently holds the No. 10 spot on the rankings.
