WWE reportedly wants Paige VanZant, other female UFC fighters for SummerSlam

Paige Vanzant

There's been a ton of talk over the last 48 hours about what WWE would get in return for Brock Lesnar fighting at UFC 200. As we noted on Sunday, UFC will be promoting SummerSlam during UFC 202 on 8/20 but WWE will also be doing some promotion of the UFC 200 card so it still seems that UFC still owes WWE something in return.

Conor McGregor and Ronda Rousey's names have come up but, according to a report on PWInsider Elite, there has been talk within WWE about getting some of UFC's female fighters involved somehow on SummerSlam in Brooklyn. WWE has reportedly reached out to VanZant's manager but, at last word, there is nothing signed and there's no word on how far talks got.

VanZant is coming off the most recent season of Daning With The Stars and she is fielding movie offers. She is scheduled to be part of the Kickboxer reboot with Jean-Claude Van Damme, Georges St. Pierre and Gina Carano.
