Pic: Paige VanZant wants to know if she looks too skinny in her pink bikini

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) flyweight attraction, Paige VanZant, was forced to remove herself from last weekend’s UFC 216 pay-per-view (PPV) fight against Jessica Eye in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Don’t worry, she’ll be back before the year is through.

But during her time away, “12 Gauge” had the opportunity to reflect on her career at 115 pounds, which usually required weight cuts so brutal, they left her with fainting spells and an awful eating disorder.

Ain’t nobody got time for that, according to VanZant.

Always the engager, the former Dancing with the Stars finalist wants you to see what strawweight looks like — via pink bikini — and get your feedback on whether or not you do, in fact, got time for skin and bones.

Put your worm away, that was the other post.

VanZant (7-3) jumped out to three straight wins after making her Octagon debut in late 2014; however, she’s since gone 2-2 and got tapped twice in submission losses to Rose Namajunas and Michelle Waterson.

Will a beefier role at 125 pounds make a difference?
