Paige VanZant dominates in first Power Slap match after career switch

Paige VanZant dominates in first Power Slap match after career switch

No Octagon? No problem for Paige VanZant. 

Appearing for Dana White’s other company, Power Slap, the controversial combat-sports promotion that gifts opponents unimpeded strikes to each other’s faces, VanZant eased her way to a debut victory.

VanZant shook off four unprotected slaps to her face from Christine Wolmarans, with the former UFC fighter’s opponent getting an extra slap to try and even the score with her OnlyFans adversary. 

VanZant’s first strike did not seem to faze Wolmarans. Her next two visibly did, sending her opponent to one knee in the second and third rounds after a stumble. 

VanZant never showed any visible damage from Wolmarans’ strikes, taunting her by shaking her head after the first two strikes, then walking around celebrating after the third.

VanZant crossing over to Power Slap is her latest attempt to have success in a combat sport that is not the UFC. 

The bantamweight has not fought in the UFC since a July 2020 loss to Amanda Ribas, where she was submitted in the first round. 

VanZant had appeared for the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship and YouTuber KSI’s MisFits Boxing promotion. 

VanZant even tried her hand at professional wrestling with All Elite Wrestling in 2021 and 2022. During one memorable segment, she knocked out longtime veteran Chris Jericho. 

After a successful Power Slap debut, it appears the 30-year-old VanZant has found her next adventure in combat sports, even if that’s not all she is up to these days. 

She has a podcast with husband and fellow MMA fighter Austin Vanderford, and is still making OnlyFans content.  

VanZant revealed in February she was offered $50,000 on her OnlyFans account to cut her hair and mail it to one of her subscribers.  

VanZant charges $9.99 per month for access to her OnlyFans account. Last September, VanZant said she made more money from one day of OnlyFans than in her entire fighting career.
