Paige VanZant is set to make her Bare Knuckle debut soon and is training hard for the same

Former UFC star Paige VanZant seems to be preparing for her Bare Knuckle debut and is picking up the weights.

The American was one of the most popular faces in the UFC but was released. She lost her last fight for the promotion and in a shock move, signed up for Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships.

VanZant staying in the fight game wasn’t a surprise, however, it was a bit of a head scratcher why she ended up at Bare Knuckle when the likes of ONE or Bellator were there.

Nevertheless, the 26-year-old has been training hard for her debut in the promotion and posted a video of the same.

The American could be seen lifting weights and she suggested that there should be more reps on the way too.

There is no information of who she fights on her debut for Bare Knuckle. VanZant has a four-fight exclusive contract and it will be interesting to see how he does in that promotion.

Another star joining her?

Rachael Ostovich had earlier quipped about VanZant’s face getting beat up and how they needed good cutmen in the promotion.

However, Ostovich was also released by the UFC after another loss, and it will be interesting to see where she ends up.

She has spoken of several avenues regarding her future and even a chance in WWE cannot be ruled out.

VanZant, for her part, looks to be in decent shape and her debut for Bare Knuckle is certainly something to look forward too.

Her MMA record isn’t the worst with eight wins and five losses but she is to start a new chapter in her fighting life soon.
