PHOTOS & BIO: Former Model Turned UFC Women’s Strawweight Prospect Paige VanZant


Ladies and gentlemen, meet Paige VanZant, one of the newest additions to the UFC Women’s Strawweight division.

A former model, VanZant now spends her days in front of the camera for a different reason — kicking butt.

In fact, this past Saturday at the UFC Fight Night 57 event in Austin, Texas (headlined by Frankie Edgar vs. Cub Swanson), she kicked butt so well that her third-round technical knockout victory over the previously undefeated Kailin Curran in her official Octagon debut earned her a “Fight of the Night” bonus.

VanZant trains at times with the folks at Team Alpha Male, led by one of the UFC’s poster boys — “The California Kid” Urijah Faber — and is also home to current UFC Bantamweight Champion, TJ Dillashaw.

At only 20 years of age, Paige “12-Gauge” VanZant stands at 5’4” and owns a professional MMA record of 4-1, with the lone defeat to current Ultimate Fighter 20 contestant — and in some people’s eyes one of the favorites to win the competition — Tecia Torres.

Below and across the next several pages are some photos of the sexy-butt-kicker, Paige “12-Gauge” VanZant.
