UFC star Paige VanZant comments on WWE interest

ufclogoUFC fighter Paige VanZant spoke about mutual interest between her and UFC during an interview with Sports Illustrated. “We heard a little bit from them,” VanZant said. “They’re someone I’d love to partner with and work with, they’re a great organization. I’m a huge fan of WWE, and I definitely want to keep them close. Eventually, it’s still something I would love to do.” Read the full interview at SI.com.

Powell’s POV: The interview was conducted prior to VanZant’s knockout win over Bec Rawlings at UFC Fight Night on Saturday. VanZant, who was the runner-up on the latest season of “Dancing with the Stars” television show, reportedly had talks with WWE about a SummerSlam appearance that never materializes. At age 22, she has a bright future whether she sticks with MMA or takes the pro wrestling plunge.
