Paige Vanzant signs “multimillion-dollar” deal with Bareknuckle FC

According to ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, former UFC flyweight Paige Vanzant has signed a “multimillion-dollar” deal with Bareknuckle FC.

Helwani tweeted that Vanzant (8-5 2KO) explained her move as proving that she’s not just a pretty face in MMA.

The 26-year-old announced that she would part ways with the UFC shortly after falling short in her last bout to Amanda Ribas (10-1 4KO) in July, along with three of her last five fights.

There were rumors that Vanzant would likely sign with Bellator; but, if Bareknuckle is handing out multimillion-dollar contracts, Bellator is more than likely unequipped to engage in a bidding war.
