Vanzant on landing a spot with Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2019 :
I was unbelievably shocked that SI Swimsuit called and asked if I would be apart of their magazine. I have constantly been having to prove to the world and UFC fans that you can be beautiful and a bad ass at the same time. Well, now it’s my moment to shine.
Vanzant on her experience shooting in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico:
Puerto Vallarta was magical! The beaches were beautiful, the food was amazing, and the people made us feel like family. I am so happy that I was able to bring my husband on the shoot with me. We haven’t been able to go on a honeymoon yet and after visiting Puerto Vallarta, we are sure that this is where we want to spend it and are in the process of planning it.
Vazant on her love for modeling:
As a little girl I aspired to be a lot of things. Dirt bike racer, professional dancer, fire fighter or a model. I got a small taste of modeling as a child by being in some ads for a few clothing companies. I never got a real feel for it until later on in my career. Being in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue is the pinnacle of my modeling career thus far. I would love to continue modeling and show off the girly side of me that people don’t get to see when I am training for fights.
