The UFC Fight Night Paris card is live tonight and we’ve got your running play-by-play coverage right here. The Accor Arena in Paris, France is where it all goes down, and even though this event was absolutely ravaged with withdrawals, injury cancellations and reshuffling, we’re still getting a great headliner and co-main event. When six fights end up being affected, one has to wonder what’s left. Fortunately, the two most important contests on the card are still intact. Praise the violence gods for small favors.

In the co-main event spot we will be treated to a women’s flyweight bout between former strawweight champion Rose Namajunas and France’s own Manon Fiorot, the number three contender. Namajunas will make her 125-pound debut after losing her strawweight title to Carla Esparza in May of 2022. Speaking to media this week, Rose says she’s not going back to 115 pounds, so it will be interesting to see how she fares up a weight class.

Manon Fiorot is on a whopping 10-fight win streak with her last bout being a unanimous decision over Katlyn Chookagian. She arrived on the UFC scene with a highly decorated kickboxing pedigree and was even France’s snowboarding champ for a spell. Will she be able to outmuscle Namajunas or will Rose end up taking her to school?

The winner of this bout could end up facing the winner of Grasso-Shevchenko II or they could face Erin Blanchfield in a title eliminator. Women’s flyweight has certainly beefed up and with Valentina Shevchenko’s stranglehold on the division finally broken, the opportunity for new blood on the throne is positively palpable. The division’s future is looking so bright, we’ve gotta wear shades.
