The money from her personal website must be rolling in, because former UFC star Paige VanZant teased her millions of followers on Instagram with a racy story involving her squirting whipped cream on herself and directed fans to go to her website to see more.
The former UFC starlet-turned-Bare Knuckle fighter made her debut with the promotion last month, engaging in a five-round battle with opponent Britain Hart, but ultimately lost a unanimous decision on the scorecards.
“For me, honestly, there’s a few things I’m going to take away from it and go back to my gym and adjust and learn,” VanZant said on her Sirius XM show Knuckle Up Radio. “It was a really big learning process throughout the fight. As the rounds went, I feel I was kind of finding my rhythm and finding my groove and kind of understanding what was working, what wasn’t. Stepping into an entirely different sport really and not being able to fully train this sport unless you fight. You can’t really box bare-knuckle in the gym. It was an adjustment period.
“It sucks. It’s unfortunate. I’m not happy that I lost ever, it’s the biggest letdown in the world but I know it’s not going to shake me. It’s not going to define me. I know with my performance what I did wrong and I can go back and learn and get better and what an inspiration I hope to other people who are questioning if they belong in something or trying something new and have that question like ‘what if I fail?’ Yeah, what if you fail? It’s fine. It’s not a big deal. Failure happens everyday. It happens to some athletes on the biggest stages with the biggest audience and guess what? You go home to your family and you start over.”
For now, she is going to let her body recover before she gets back in the Octagon, but she can still give fans want they want while making tons of money with her personal website.
