And that's exactly what Ostovich did Friday night at the Florida State Fairgrounds, defeating VanZant in a five-round war at Bare Knuckle FC 19. Ostovich, who consistently found a home for her overhand right, outpointed VanZant to win a unanimous decision by scores of 48-47, 48-47 and 49-46.
The victory avenged a January 2019 submission loss to VanZant while the two competed in the UFC. It was also Ostovich's first win in a combat sports competition since a December 2017 submission of Karine Gevorgyan at The Ultimate Fighter 26 Finale.
