Paige VanZant

Criticized for being undeserving of the massive attention she gained with her Reebok endorsement deal, 21-year-old women’s strawweight Paige VanZant put on a silencing performance at tonight’s (Sat., April 18, 2015) UFC on FOX 15 from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, by battering former No. 6-ranked veteran Felice Herrig with a smothering display of heart and will under fire.

With only five mixed martial arts (MMA) bouts to her name heading into the bout, Herrig was the main opponent of VanZant’s supposedly over-inflated hype train. But “12 Gauge” proved that she had the skills to match her popularity and beauty, outclassing The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 20 alum with a vicious barrage of ground and pound.
