You have to give it to Paige VanZant, if nothing else she is supremely confident in her abilities. Sure confidence is neighbors to delusion but still you have to respect VanZant saying aloud for the world to hear that she would fight Ronda Rousey. Yup, that Paige VanZant wants to fight the human buzzsaw known as Ronda Rousey.
VanZant and Rousey already have beef dating back to the former champ mean mugging the hell out of the doe eyed Dancing with the Stars finalist.. NESN with the transcription of story VanZant told Miesha Tate.
“Paige and I have spoken before, we’re friendly; I don’t know her that well. Anyway, she felt the need, she came up to me — ‘Miesha, Miesha, I have to tell you this experience I had with Ronda’. I’m like ‘What?’ She’s like ‘We were at a Reebok deal recently and we were at a shoot and I was trying to find her so we could get a picture, and the Reebok people were like ‘Don’t ask Ronda for a picture.’ She’s like ‘Why?’ And they’re like ‘Just don’t. Stay away from Ronda, don’t ask her for a picture.’
“I guess Ronda came later that day and seeked her out and like cussed her out. Like, they’ve never really had a conversation either. She’s like ‘I don’t know Ronda other than ‘Hi, bye,’ that’s it.’ I guess Ronda came up and was like ‘(expletive) you, you fair-weather (expletive), how dare you cross me?’ She’s like ‘Cross you? What are you talking about?’ And she’s like ‘You congratulated Holly Holm for beating me so (expletive) you, you (expletive) fair-weather 115-pound’. She just went off on Paige. And Paige came and told me and I was like honey, welcome to my world. She was like ‘I’m glad I saw this side of her so I know’.”
Awkward? Random? WTF? Which should also be your reaction when you hear that Paige VanZant would be open to fighting Rousey at a 125 pound catchweight. Check the interview with TMZ Sports below where PVZ looks to book her own career funeral live from a UFC cage.
