COMING FOR YOU!!! ???? @bareknucklefc

Look, I’m a Paige VanZant fan, and I was incredibly supportive of her career in the UFC. I honestly thought she was going to be a star.

While her career teetered out by the end of it, VanZant still did a great job of moving the needle with her personality and energy.

Having said that, I don’t understand becoming a bare knuckle fighter at all. Seriously, what is the goal here?

VanZant has been pretty open about the fact that she makes more money outside of fighting in entertainment and social media promotion than from actually throwing punches.

Why would she want to bare knuckle fight and potentially mess up her face in a way that isn’t fixable? Won’t that ruin her income outside of fighting?

Joining the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship seems like a terrible career move, but it’s her call to make. We’ll see how it works out.
