Paige VanZant releases provocative self-made Reebok promo video, gets slammed by fellow UFC fighters

MMA: UFC Fight Night-VanZant vs Waterson Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) strawweight contender Paige VanZant recently took to Twitter and published a self-made video promoting Reebok’s new clothing line.

After it was met with harsh criticism by many fellow strawweights and others in the MMA community, “12 Gauge” deleted the video. Of course, Twitter snipers quickly grabbed and uploaded it for everyone to enjoy.

Check it out below thanks to Twitter user Rob Young courtesy of Bloody Elbow:

Are you not entertained?

Now, check out some of the reactions:

Paige earned a solo Reebok deal two years ago, much to the chagrin of many, as most in the MMA circle believed she hadn’t proved herself just yet, but was only given the opportunity due to her looks.

Or having the “it” factor.

Nevertheless, Paige is still one of the most heavily-promoted fighters inside the Octagon, despite not being able to get over the hump, as far as winning “big” fights is concerned.

It’s for that reason, coupled with the fact that VanZant has earned numerous other opportunities despite her shortcomings inside the cage, that many seem to have an issue with Paige. But, at the end of the day, no one should fault her for taking advantage of any opportunity give to her.

After all, it’s just business.

As for her promo video, I leave it to you to give us your thoughts in the comments section below.
