Paige VanZant made a name for herself in Ultimate Fighting Championship. Paige competed in the MMA promotion’s strawweight and flyweight divisions. Paige left UFC in 2020 to join Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.
Paige recently said she plans on sticking with BKFC and is working to extend her contract with the promotion. The 28-year-old currently holds a 0-2 record in Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.
“I’m still bare knuckle boxing. I’m still with BKFC. I’m about to sign a contract extension. Of course I didn’t have the greatest success right off the bat but that also fueled my fire even more.
“Training harder and I do see a lot of relationship between my training for BKFC and my training for pro wrestling. “The great thing is there’s 24 hours in a day and I’m going to use every single hour of that to train for both.”
Paige is also signed to Tony Khan’s AEW. She is part of the heel group American Top Team managed by Dan Lambert. The faction is currently involved in a feud with Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti.
