Paige VanZant is cuter than Smurfette, yet fights harder than an enraged hobbit. This is good, because it means the UFC can promote her as a rising star, and put her atop Fight Pass events. Such is the case with next Thursday’s UFC Fight Night 80, which will see PVZ take on Rose Namajunas in the main event.
If PVZ wins, she moves one step closer to a shot at the strawweight title, and that would make a lot of people happy. If she loses, well, she’s still pretty, so it’s not like the UFC will get rid of her (heck, they’ve kept Angela Magana on the payroll, and Magana is so win-less in the Octagon she doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page).
Below is PVZ’s last fight. Obviously, she kicked some butt.
