Paige VanZant: \u201cI\u2019m Not Ready To Leave The UFC Just Yet, I Still Have A Long Career In Front Of Me, But WWE Is Also An Amazing Organization\u201d Paige VanZant is probably the fighter with most wonderful kicks in UFC Women\u2019s Strawweight and Flyweight division. Unfortunately, she broke her hand in her last match at the beginning of 2018. "PVZ" had to go under the knife two times to fix the broken limb. Yet, \u201c12-Gauge\u201d has finally recovered. Her fight versus Rachael Ostovich is slated for UFC Fight Night 143 on January 19, 2019. Paige VanZant stated that she barely waited to get back inside the Octagon again. (via MMAWeekly.com) \u201cThe layoff has been difficult in the sense that I just really want to fight again. I\u2019ve had long layoffs before and found success off the back of them. I don\u2019t believe in ring rust; I think if you are prepared then that\u2019s enough. I just can\u2019t wait to get back in there,\u201d added the 24-year-old. Paige VanZant returns after two losses in a row. \u201c12-Gauge\u201d was defeated to Jessica Rose-Clark via unanimous decision on January 14, 2018, at UFC Fight Night 124. She also lost the previous fight to Michelle Waterson via rear-naked choke at UFC On Fox 22 on December 17, 2016. "PVZ" confessed that she had a hard time recovering from negative results. \u201cIt\u2019s really challenging after a loss. All eyes are on me and you can\u2019t hide away from it. Social media can be tough as well because fans come down hard on you, but losses don\u2019t define who I am and I need to constantly remind myself of that,\u201d she said. Paige VanZant would like to get a title shot in the future. According to \u201c12-Gauge\u201d, the division is small, so two-three good fights should be enough to prove herself. \u201cI still think I have to prove myself before I get any title shot. I know the division is quite small, but I need at least two or three wins before I get there. I\u2019d obviously love if that opportunity came sooner, but I also want to give myself the proper time to prepare for something like that. I want to earn it,\u201d said VanZant. Her match versus Rachel Ostovich is set in UFC Women's Flyweight division. Yet, "12-Gauge" bounces between 115 and 125 pounds with a good reason. She hopes for a rematch versus Rose Namajunas one day. \u201cI see myself as the perfect fit between 115 pounds and 125 pounds and I intend to bounce back and forth depending on what opportunities arise and right now I see my opportunity at 125 pounds, but who knows where I might go after my next fight,\u201d she said. \u201cThe Rose fight is definitely an option down the line. We went five rounds already and that\u2019s an opportunity that could be explored.\u201d But her natural weight is 137 pounds. So, Paige VanZant confesses that she had a hard time cutting weight at 115. Health risks are huge. \u201cWhen I fight at 115 pounds, it\u2019s very difficult because I have to cut quite a lot of weight. I walk around at about 137 pounds, so it was causing a lot of harm to my body by cutting so much weight. As a female it\u2019s also much more dangerous cutting so much weight because of the damage it can do to the body,\u201d she added. VanZant was also asked about the current status of UFC Men's Flyweight division too. She claims that the fact UFC wanted to get rid of it sounded sad. Yet, she understands the move. According to \u201c12-Gauge\u201d, it is an entertainment company. The primary goal is money earning. \u201cIt\u2019s really sad because there is a lot of talent in that division, so I hate to see them go, but I know there\u2019s a lot of other successful organizations that they can transfer to. It\u2019s hard for the UFC because most men aren\u2019t that small. So, while the top five are incredibly talented, there aren\u2019t a lot of men who are that size, so it\u2019s difficult for it to be a strong division,\u201d VanZant explained. \u201cThe UFC just has to go where they\u2019ll make money. They\u2019re an entertainment company and perhaps don\u2019t see the value in it. But it is hard; I am a huge fan of Demetrious (Johnson) and he has been amazing for this sport and he was a great champion. I\u2019m very excited to see his future at ONE and I think he is going to be great for them,\u201d she added. Paige VanZant says she didn\u2019t plan to join WWE soon cause she hoped for a long-time career in the Octagon. \u201cPVZ\u201d is attending global tech conference Web Summit in Portugal at the moment. Stephanie McMahon, WWE chief brand officer, is one of the main speakers there. \u201c12-Gauge\u201d spoke to her on Tuesday. \u201cI\u2019m not ready to leave the UFC just yet. I love being a professional fighter and I still have a long career ahead of me. I also think the WWE is an amazing organization and it\u2019s a very athletic entertainment industry which would suit me,\u201d she admitted. \u201cThere\u2019s probably huge potential for a crossover down the line and of course I\u2019m a big fan of what they do, so it would be great to be a part of. I got the opportunity to talk to Stephanie for a little bit on Tuesday which was great.\u201d What are your thoughts on this? Also, do you believe Paige VanZant could send Rachael Ostovich to sleep? She has some fabulous kicks under her arsenal! It would be two collision of two very hot UFC fighters!
