UFC megastar Paige VanZant shared two old photos of herself from her time cutting weight, and they’re both very disturbing.
VanZant used to fight in the strawweight division at 115 pounds, which is not a lot of weight on the bones of an elite athlete.
She looks sickly and insanely skinny in both photos. However, it looks like she has zero desire to ever return to fighting at 115 pounds. She captioned one photo in part, “115lb Paige? Ain’t nobody got time for that!! Haha I can’t wait to wreck shop at 125!!!!”
There was a second photo she posted of herself on the floor, but it has since been deleted.
Both of those photos are insane. I can’t imagine cutting so much weight that your rib cage is protruding so much. Hopefully fighting at 125 pounds leads to VanZant being in a healthier state.
