Blanchfield replaces Bea Malecki who withdrew from the upcoming fight against Norma Dumont (5-1) at UFC on ABC 2 on April 10 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Silver Fox BJJ submission artist was scheduled to face former UFC fighter Pearl Gonzalez in November under the Invicta FC banner. That bout was to be for the promotion’s vacant flyweight title but was canceled after Gonzalez tested positive for COVID-19.
Blanchfield’s last win came by way of unanimous decision over Brogan Walker-Sanchez at Invicta FC 41 in July 2020.
