Paige VanZant hasn't fought since she entered the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) ring almost two years ago, but despite having a successful online business, she is still motivated to fight.

The BKFC president, David Feldman, revealed the organisation is still trying on bringing VanZant back for at least one more bout, and preliminary talks have started to make that happen.

However, there is no official news on when she will be competing once more. VanZant was last slated to compete in an August battle against Charisa Sigala, however the match was cancelled days before the scheduled BKFC event in London.

VanZant has recently been preoccupied with building a new home in Florida and making a very good life from both her personal website and OnlyFans page.

Feldman acknowledges that even he questioned whether VanZant would ever engage in combat again given how much money she is receiving through those channels, but he appears to have received an answer.

“Paige, she always comes to fight,” Feldman said. “Some people want to say, ‘She lost twice.’ She lost two close fights. She came to fight both times. She challenged herself both times. She doesn’t have to fight a day in her life ever again and she’s going to live a superstar life. She wants to challenge herself again.

“I take my hat off to her. Whatever she’s doing outside the ring, that’s on her own and let her do whatever she’s doing to make that kind of money she’s making, but as far as being a fighter, she keeps wanting to challenge herself and how can you not respect that.”
