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).
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.
