Paige VanZant Announces Her Misfits Deal; Still Plans On Fighting In BKFC

Paige VanZant will fight in BKFC despite announcing her deal with Misfits. 

Fans last saw her at BKFC, where she had two fights. Both ended in losses. Her first bout was a loss to Britain Hart. That was followed up with a defeat to Rachel Ostovich at BKFC 19, which was her last fight. She joined AEW in 2022 before joining OnlyFans.

Her return was teased after DAZN appeared to have leaked her return during their coverage for the Devin Haney vs. Ryan Garcia pre-fight presser. VanZant has now confirmed her return, as she will box Elle Brooke. However, she still plans on fighting in BKFC. 

“We’d been training for this. We kind of knew me boxing on Misfits was going to happen eventually. We got it all settled down and now I’ve got a boxing match coming up. Misfits actually signed me to a multi-fight contract. So I think there’s rumors they want me to fight again in Dubai, at one of their cards. I’m here to stay. Of course there’s other opportunities, I still definitely will be in BKFC.

“I absolutely love the promotion. I loved bare-knuckle boxing. So this is just another one of those boxing matches and it’s really, really exciting. Oh absolutely [I will fight in BKFC again], I believe I still have one more fight on my contract with them. They were nice enough to let me come do a boxing match with gloves on. I offered it to my opponent if she wanted to do bare-knuckle, she said no. So, BKFC will definitely see me again,” VanZant said

VanZant has several options. She has spoken about being financially secure and earning more on OnlyFans than during her fight career. She is also the favorite against Brooke, even if her opponent has been more active. Brooke defeated AJ Bunker in January. However, Brooke is an influencer-turned-boxer, while VanZant grew up in combat sports, making Paige a big favorite.
