UFC star Paige VanZant is one of the most popular fighters on social media. Her online success forced her to reevaluate her contract with the promotion of MMA.
In an appearance on Ariel Helwani’s “MMA Show” on Monday, VanZant said he was making more money “sitting at home posting photos on Instagram” than fighting. He explained that without his sponsorship agreements, including the launch of health products on social networks and on television, he would suffer a financial loss.
“By far,” said VanZant, who is recovering from an arm injury.
VanZant, which has 2.2 million followers on Instagram, still has to fight in its contract with UFC. She has fought twice since 2016, scoring twice in her last three games. The 25-year-old is one of the most recognized fighters in the society. He was a finalist in “Dancing With The Stars” and expects to be paid at the star level.
