Paige VanZant is going viral again.
Despite not fighting in the UFC since July of 2020 when she lost to Amanda Ribas, VanZant is still one of the biggest stars the company has ever created.
VanZant has gone on to star in a number of different avenues, such as appearances on Dancing With the Stars, All Elite Wrestling and Chopped in addition to fights in Bare Knuckle FC.
The blonde bombshell has over 3.2 million followers on her Instagram page and that number seems to grow exponentially almost every day.
VanZant 0-2 thus far in her BKFC career, but if her previous comments are any indication, she’s not ready to call it quits.
“I have so much respect for [BKFC founder] Dave Feldman and what he’s doing with BKFC. Honestly, they’re growing astronomically. They’re really putting a lot behind what they do.
Once you go to a Bare Knuckle fight, it is like nothing you’ve ever been to. Every single fight is a sprint from bell to bell. They’re five two minute rounds, so you have a short period of time in each round to really make your mark and win the round. So it’s insane. The excitement behind each fight is crazy.
This sport is going to take off because every fight is one to remember. I truly believe that when people tune in and watch these fights they’re going to be like, ‘Holy cow, this is exciting!’
It does feel like the gladiator back in the day, just two people fighting. It’s exciting. It’s just a cool thing to be a part of.”
Most recently, VanZant celebrated her 29th birthday on Sunday. And she did so by dropping jaws and going viral with poolside Instagram photo shoot.
“Here’s to 29,” the short caption stated.
Within 24 hours the post has 57.4 thousand likes and over 650 comments. Ironically, VanZant shares a birthday with fellow blonde bombshell influencer Paige Spiranac, who also went viral on Sunday for her birthday IG post.
