There has been no word yet on when the wedding is going to be taking place, but this is also the first engagement for the UFC star.

VanZant is currently recovering from the aforementioned broken arm, a time frame for a return to action has yet to be established by the fighter or the promotion.

Vanderford is the current CageSport Welterweight Champion and his last fight was a victory over Kenny Licea at Victory Fighting Championships 69. Vanderford doesn't have another fight booked at the moment and with a pending wedding on the horizon, it is unknown just when the welterweight will step back into the cage again.
