Paige VanZant on possibly working with WWE and her upcoming fight with Bec Rawlings

Paige VanZant is set to fight Bec Rawlings at UFC on FOX 21 this Saturday night in Vancouver, British Columbia and spoke with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard to promote the fight.

“She’s known for her toughness," VanZant said when asked about fighting Rawlings. "She goes out there to fight, and she’s got good boxing skills.”

WWE wanted VanZant to appear SummerSlam, but she turned them down because she wanted to focus on training and coming back as a better fighter than before. VanZant has been out of action since last December when she lost to Rose Namajunas at at UFC Fight Night 80. VanZant explained that she is a big WWE fan and would love to work with them in the future.

“We heard a little bit from them. They’re someone I’d love to partner with and work with, they’re a great organization. I’m a huge fan of WWE, and I definitely want to keep them close. Eventually, it’s still something I would love to do.”
