Obviously, props to VanZant for getting paid, but I can’t help but think this is a avery stupid decision.

For those of you who don’t know, the BKFC is straight up fighting without gloves. It’s incredibly brutal, and VanZant just signed up for four bouts.

Honestly, I don’t understand why VanZant just doesn’t stop fighting and find work in the entertainment industry.

She’s already made serious money from “Dancing with the Stars,” and could make a ton more without her face getting bashed in.

Clearly, she must just love fighting.

Best of luck, but I think there’s a high chance that she is going to regret this career move.
