Paige VanZant: “My poor fiancé, everyone hates him a tiny bit”

Popular women’s flyweight fighter Paige VanZant dropped some big news on January 28 when she announced that she had “said yes” to her boyfriend and fellow MMA fighter Austin Vanderford.

That’s right folks, Paige VanZant is getting married!

The 23-year-old was a recent guest fighter at last weekend’s UFC London event where she was asked how her fan base reacted to the news of her pending marriage and if anyone had tried to talk her out of it.

“Yea, I would definitely say… My poor fiancé. Everyone hates him a tiny bit,” VanZant told MMAnytt. “But he’s an awesome fighter you know. I can’t wait for him to make his run in the UFC and it’s going to come very soon. He’s a national level champion wrestler so I am excited to see his future. You know I think he will get some more fans once they are able to see him perform.”

Austin Vanderford, also known as “AK-47”, has gone a perfect 3-0 thus far in his career and currently competes at welterweight (170-pounds).

As for “PVZ”, after suffering through some grueling weight cuts while competing in the UFC’s women’s strawweight division, Paige recently made the decision to move up a weight class.

VanZant made her flyweight debut this past January in St. Louis where she dropped a unanimous decision loss to Jessica-Rose Clark, suffering a broken arm in the process.

After starting her UFC career with three straight victories, “PVZ” has since gone 1-3 over her past four fights.

VanZant’s most recent win came in August of 2016 where she scored a spectacular switch-kick knockout victory over Bec Rawlings.
