Trick'd Up: Watch Criss Angel rip UFC starlet Paige VanZant in half on A&E magic show

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

This is not for those with weak stomachs ... literally.

Street magician Criss Angel has done some pretty interesting magic tricks over the course of his career, but what he recently did to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Strawweight Paige VanZant is mind-blowing. As part of his upcoming show "Trick'd Up," Angel seemingly rips "12 Gauge" in half in the video clip embedded below.

Check it out:


Thankfully, Angel was able to put VanZant back in one piece, and it's a good thing, too, as her mixed martial arts (MMA) career and ventures outside of the Octagon have been flourishing over the last few years.

"Trick'd Up" -- which will feature plenty of other mind-blowing illusions -- premiers on Oct. 12, 206, at 9 p.m. E.T. on A&E.
