Former UFC fighter Paige VanZant has spoken out on those who question her decision to “sell her body.”
VanZant has made it clear that she’s made more money posting online content on platforms such as OnlyFans than she ever did during her UFC run. While some have expressed happiness for Paige, others have grilled her on posting racy photos and videos.
It has led VanZant to respond during an episode of “A Kickass Love Story” with her husband, fellow combat sports athlete Austin Vanderford.
Paige VanZant Doesn’t Believe She’s Selling Her Body
Paige VanZant doesn’t understand why people believe her body is for sale on the internet when no physical content with viewers is exchanged.
“I’m just living my life,” VanZant said. “I don’t know exactly what you’re wanting from me. It’s forcing me to have this opinion or deep thought on OnlyFans. I saw on social media, some that are like, ‘Oh, why do you do OnlyFans?’ Or, ‘Why do you sell your body?’ It’s like okay, my initial thoughts are like, ‘Well I don’t see it as selling myself. Nobody’s allowed to touch me except for my husband.'”
VanZant went to say that if anything, she and Vanderford have sold their bodies to combat sports promotions.
“Aren’t you selling your body to Bellator, or I’m selling my body to the UFC? I’ve sold my body to the UFC. I got broken bones, my face cut up, I got injured, probably concussion, I’ve got a broken nose, my arm broken four times, I tore my shoulder. Isn’t that the same thing? I literally sold my body to the UFC, and now, like yeah, am I selling pictures of myself online? Yeah, and I definitely understand why people aren’t okay with that. I totally respect other people’s opinion and not being okay with it.”
