Dana White Announces More Fights Happening In 2024

On March 30, the UFC is returning to Atlantic City, and they are bringing a high-stakes flyweight fight to the boardwalk as No. 2 ranked Erin “Cold Blooded” Blanchfield with face No. 3 ranked Manon “The Beast” Fiorot.

New Jersey’s own Blanchfield figures to have plenty of support in the Garden state and abroad as she looks to secure a shot at the flyweight title. Blanchfield is 12-1, undefeated in the UFC, and her wins over Jéssica Andrade and Taila Santos have her firmly in line to compete for gold if she can get past France’s Fiorot.

The 33-year-old Fiorot finds herself in the same position as Blanchfield, undefeated in the UFC and likely one statement win away from fighting for the 125-pound strap. Fiorot has already showcased her technique and skills in wins over contenders such as Tabatha Ricci, now bantamweight contender Mayra Bueno Silva, Jennifer Maia, and Katlyn Chookagian. In Fiorot’s last bout, she took a big risk by welcoming former strawweight champion Rose Namajunas to the division, but Fiorot cashed in big time by beating “Thug Rose” by unanimous decision.

White also announced the first three fights to go on UFC 300, happening on April 13 in Las Vegas.

Former UFC light heavyweight champion and current No. 2 ranked Jirí Procházka will fight No. 5 ranked Aleksandar Rakić in a crucial 205-pound fixture.
