Ex-UFC sensation Paige VanZant given a final warning over BKFC future


David Feldman, the owner of BKFC, has given Paige VanZant a deadline about her future in the boxing company. The former UFC champion will most likely be cut from their roster and won’t compete in bare-knuckle boxing again if she doesn’t fight again in April.

After nearly six years of competing in the UFC, the 28-year-old American signed with the BKFC. Although she could have had a better record in the UFC, she fought some formidable opponents, including former two-time strawweight champion Rose Namajunas. In 2020, she signed with the BKFC.

So far, Paige VanZant’s tenure at BKFC has been miserable. She has competed in the promotion twice and lost both matches. At BKFC 19, she lost to Rachael Ostovich in a unanimous decision.
It appears like the 28-year-old will be arrested for the BKFC game on April 29. Feldman, however, recently disclosed that ’12 Gauge’s’ stint in the promotion would probably come to an end if she doesn’t fight on that day.

Paige VanZant: What is her UFC record?

Paige VanZant’s UFC career got off to the best possible start. With a memorable third-round TKO victory over Kailin Curran in 2014, VanZant made her professional debut and earned the “Fight of the Night” title. In 2014–15, she went on to win three consecutive matches.

Guage’s UFC record now reads five victories and four defeats. She has a victory over MMA veteran Felice Herrig, despite the fact that her record isn’t particularly outstanding. She also competed against former strawweight champion Rose Namajunas and former Invicta atomweight champion Michelle Waterson during her less-than-stellar career.

In her final match in the UFC, strawweight Amanda Ribas, who is now rated No. 9, defeated Paige VanZant via first-round submission. She earned two submissions, two knockouts, and one decision victory during her time in the organisation. Her modest 8-5 overall record in mixed martial arts.
It’s interesting to note that VanZant is a professional wrestler who also competes in the All Elite Wrestling (AEW). ’12 Gauge’ has great success with the subscription-based multimedia site OnlyFans while continuing her combat sports career.
