Former UFC fighter and current BKFC prospect Paige Vanzant plans to leave BKFC after her contract expires and has expressed interest in signing with Bellator MMA. Many UFC fighters after leaving UFC try themself in promotions like Bellator, ONE FC, and BKFC, but not everyone has success. Paige joined BKFC as their newest women’s prospect and was already a star there. But the results of her fights weren’t that good as she faced back-to-back defeats. She is 0-2 in her Bare Knuckle Fighting career and now plans to leave the promotion and explore other opportunities.
After losing her last fight and getting her BKFC record to 0-2, Paige was heartbroken. She has now only one fight left in her deal and if she losses that then she might consider going for some new promotion like Bellator.
Paige VanZant made her debut for the promotion against Britain Hart in the main event of BKFC: Knucklemania in Tampa, Florida. She lost a very close fight via unanimous decision. The fight was pretty competitive and could have gone either way. In her second fight, she fought her former UFC opponent Rachael Ostovich. The duo previously met in UFC where Paige won the fight. But this time around the result was in the favour of Rachel who rocked Paige several times and in the end got the decision win.
Paige Vanzant wants to fight in Bellator
Recently, on a podcast episode of Punchin’ In With American Top Team, Vanzant talked about her husband’s success in Bellator and she then also expressed her interest in coming back to the MMA and fight in the same promotion as her husband.
“That’s always on the back of my mind. I would love for us to fight for the same organization. I would love to fight for Bellator, they’ve treated him [Austin Vanderford] really well, especially now that he’s fought his way up to a title… I feel like it was good that we weren’t in the same organization because they couldn’t build him as a star by himself. He would be always kind of be in my shadow and I felt like now that I’m not with Bellator, he got to build himself up to a title shot all by himself,” Vanzant said.
Paige Vanzant is among the top female MMA stars across the world. Though her fighting record isn’t that attractive a promotion like Bellator wouldn’t mind having a bonafide Women MMA star under their contract. Paige Vanzant’s next fight hasn’t been announced yet.
