Paige VanZant has decided to put her non-fighting career on hold, returning this August to meet Bec Rawlings at UFC on FOX 21.

VanZant made an appearance on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” Thursday to announce the bout.

Set for August 27 from Rogers Arena in Vancouver, the strawweight contest will likely be part of the FOX main card.

VanZant (6-2) has won three of four inside the Octagon, but stepped away from MMA to appear on “Dancing with the Stars.” She finished runner-up on the show.

Rawlings (7-4) is 2-1 since her time on The Ultimate Fighter, scoring a March decision win over Seo Hee Ham.

Below is the current lineup:

Featherweight: Anthony Pettis vs. Charles Oliviera

Strawweight: Paige VanZant vs. Bec Rawlings
