Ostovich has been booked to fight Veronica Macedo in a flyweight bout at UFC Uruguay on August 10, Damon Martin of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
After winning her UFC debut back in late 2017, it's been a rough go for Ostovich, as she's gotten just two fights over the last two years and has lost both. Most recently, she lost to Paige VanZant via submission (armbar) in the second round of their bout at UFC Fight Night 143 in January. Ostovich's professional record is now just 4-5, and she will certainly have to prove herself come August if she wishes to remain under the UFC banner.

Ostovich lost to Paige VanZant via submission (armbar) at 1:52 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Brooklyn.
ANALYSIS
Ostovich deserves a lot of credit for even taking this fight considering everything that has been going on in her personal life the past few months. Ultimately however her inability to do anything on the mat resulted in the loss. Ostovich landed all four of her takedown attempts but she did absolutely nothing with her positional advantage. She finished with just 13 total strikes landed despite the fact she spent the majority of the contest controlling the fight on the mat. It's great to see Ostovich healthy enough to compete, but the truth of the matter is that she's not a particularly good fighter. Her career record falls below .500 (4-5) with Saturday's loss.

ANALYSIS
