Mediagenic flyweight Paige VanZant fought out her UFC contract in order to test free agency, but came up short in her final fight, getting armbarred by Amanda Rivas in the first. Now 26, PVZ says she putting off a planned surgery to have a plate in her arm removed, in order to fight again as soon as possible. Testing the market having gone 1-3 her last four is not the easiest sell.

It was assumed that she would be talking with ONE Championship and Bellator MMA, so it was a surprise when rumors emerged that she is in negotiation with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship president David Feldman.

Eric Kowal, who runs MyMMANews.com and as well works with BKFC, provided clarification.

Olympian and ONE Championship and UFC vet Ben Askren was not impressed.

BKFC has held 10 events to date, with a number of notable fighters including Artem Lobov, Ricco Rodriguez, Charles Bennett, Kendall Grove, Chris Lytle, Joe Riggs, Leonard Garcia, Joey Beltran, Bec Rawlings, Shannon Ritch, Bobby Gunn, Paulie Malignaggi, and Chris Leben. It has the feel of the earliest days of MMA, with a new but ancient and raw ruleset, blood, controversy, and questions about legality. It remains to be seen if eventually goes mainstream.

PVZ certainly has the potential to bring attention to BKFC. What do you think UG?

Van Zant stinks, I highly doubt she’ll fight there. They’re both using each other for publicity.

Who in BKFC is going to destroy her face? Bec Rawlings went 3-0 without any real damage. People keep acting like there are a bunch of badasses there but the fact is you camt name one wan fighting for them other than Bec. Theres reason for that. PVZ would be just fine there.

Source is Mike Russell hahaha

 

Just about the shittiest source you could find. Surprised he wrote something that wasn't him stalking and attacking Ali Abdelaziz.

I would prefer it with Gina Carano, Michelle Waterson and Rose Namajunas but you go ahead and crave that BBC.

Horrible decision! This means her Free agency is not going well!  She has 0 stricking and this will be a huge flop! 

 

When you run your own career and don't listen to smart people you end up like her......She is finished if she does this!

OneFC refuses to deal with her new management. So that makes sense. However I was told Bellator already said no thanks. Malki fucked this up so bad

Damn.

 

I thought you were pretty confident she was gonna pull 500k?  I'm assuming that was via ONEFC?

 

Thats a bummer. Curious why Bellator wouldn't want her.....just a money thing?

Bottom line is she wasn't happy with her UFC pay, which was $46K to show, $46K to win. If she gets more than that wherever she goes, you can't call that a loss.

She's also only 26, with over 2 million instagram followers.

Lots more plusses in that equation than minuses.

this is just a (bad) negotiating tactic
