Kailin Curran to Fight Paige VanZant in October


The UFC continues to expand their strawweight division as Kailin Curran has signed to the promotion. She and current signee Paige VanZant will slug it out at UFC Fight Night in Halifax, Canada October 4 according to a post on MMAFighting.com.

Curran (3-0) had signed to PXC last year, getting wins over InvictaFC vet Kaiyana Rain and JEWELS vet Emi Tomimatsu. The Hawaiian trains out of Reign Training Center in California with Mark Munos and Jake Ellenberger.

VanZant (3-1) had victories over Jordan Gaza and Amber Stautzenberger before getting her first defeat at the hands of Tecia Torres. The 20 year old was too young for the TUF 20 house and was directly signed to the UFC. She trains out of Team Alpha Male, home of bantamweight champion T.J. Dillasahw and UFC star Uriah Faber.

The match will most likely be a preliminary bout. It will either air on Fox Sports 1 or on UFC Fight Pass.
