Paige VanZant left school and tried her hand at modelling but when she came across an MMA gym she decided to put modelling behind her and has been climbing the fighting ladder ever since.
She comes in at 5’4”, and fights at a lean 115 pounds.
Even though she’s small in stature, don’t let VanZant fool you. She’s the real deal. She started as an amateur boxer, fighting in more than a handful of matches before UFC gave her the call. Paige took her chance and made a name for herself since she turned professional in 2012. Climbing through the ranks, she finally earned a chance to prove her grit as she will be headlining her first UFC battle.
Coming in at 6-1, VanZant will be the in the main event fighting Rose Namjunas on December 10th in Las Vegas.
