Former UFC strawweight contender Paige VanZant, once ranked as high as No. 6 at 115 pounds, previously told the combat sports media that she made more money posting on social media than she did competing inside the Octagon.
So then why take a break?
Probably because of jerks like “Powerfuljre92,” who called her “Paige OnlyFanZant” simply because “12 Gauge” posted a bikini pic on Instagram. As of this writing, her announcement has yet to find its way to her official Twitter account.
Other jerky comments:
“Her husband is so corny. He’s like a dog always trying to please his owner.” — Hatzi2k
“When are you planning to start your real career in porn?” — king.of.degestan
“You guys are gay and I’m gonna clap your cheeks Paige.” — ReggieRaceCar
The 26 year-old crossover star recently parted ways with UFC, inking a lucrative multi-fight contract with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC). VanZant is expected to make her debut in November against an opponent to be named.
Her husband, Bellator MMA welterweight Austin Vanderford, remains active on Instagram.
