"Why not? Why don't I deserve it? Hopefully, I'm going to be a very good representation to Reebok and continue to be a good representation to UFC, as well. Right now I'm going to focus on this fight and prove that I'm a superior athlete and I completely deserve to be there."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) "it girl" and up-and-coming strawweight Paige VanZant landed a monster Reebok deal ahead of her upcoming UFC on FOX 15 mixed martial arts (MMA) fight against veteran Felice Herrig, which takes place inside the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on Sat., April 18, 2015. Why? Well, why not? Her sudden rise to superstardom didn't sit well with some of the other competitors in her division, but the 20-year-old "12 Gauge" is looking to prove she got exactly what she deserved by taming the "Lil' Bulldog" in "Dirty Jersey." Does a "lucky" win over Herrig validate the hype? Time will tell...
