Back in May, Bec Rawlings called out Paige VanZant by posting a screenshot of her knocking out VanZant in EA Sports UFC 2. In the interest of unbiased journalism (I laughed too, don’t worry), we found a video of the virtual fight that had the opposite result. However, no super computer or next gen console simulation could have predicted what VanZant actually did.
Team Alpha Male (and female) is still VanZant’s camp, but did she take a Taekwondo internship somewhere? Did Joe Rogan give her some pointers before the fight? Maybe she learned a few things from Yair Rodriguez, because she pulled off damn near the exact same kick. …Unfortunately, on her teammate. Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s Maybelline, either way she pulled this crazy kick off.

Are you kidding me? After Rawlings snickered at a previous kick, VanZant flies through the air with a switch-up roundhouse kick that knocked her block off. That’s MMA karma. In her first fight since Dancing With The Stars, VanZant came back with a highlight that should pick her up right where she left off.
