Paige VanZant Wiki Update Wiki

Paige VanZant (born March 26, 1994), is a Reno-based American mixed martial artist who competes in the Women's Strawweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.A professional competitor since 2012, VanZant was a fighter in the Invicta FC before moving over to the Ultimate Fighting Championship.


UFC announced that VanZant would face Kailin Curran on October 4, 2014 in Halifax at UFC Fight Night: MacDonald vs. Saffiedine, but VanZant suffered a back injury and the bout was rescheduled for UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs. Swanson. VanZant marked her UFC debut by defeating Curran by TKO in the third round, in a fight that would win Fight of the Night honors.

 

After defeating Kailin Curran, VanZant enjoyed an increase in popularity. In February 2015, VanZant was signed to a sponsorship deal with athletic footwear giant Reebok. With only one professional UFC fight this became a source of jealousy and controversy since it was only thought she received the sponsorship because of her beauty. Only 6 fighters have separate sponsorship deals with Reebok. With the exception of Conor McGregor, who receives a title shot in 2015, VanZant is the only fighter sponsored by Reebok that hasn't had a UFC title or is a current UFC champion. UFC owner, Dana White, has said she received the Reebok deal because of her "it" factor and personality.

 

VanZant faced Felice Herrig on April 18, 2015 in Newark, New Jersey at UFC on Fox 15. She won the fight by unanimous decision.


She faced Alex Chambers on September 5, 2015 at UFC 191. After controlling most of the fight with aggressive strikes and grappling, she won via armbar submission in the third round.


VanZant signed a new contract with UFC on September 17, 2015.VanZant was expected to face Joanne Calderwood on December 10, 2015 at UFC Fight Night 80. However, Calderwood was pulled from the fight in October and replaced by Rose Namajunas.
