Paige VanZant jumped on a new social media trend. Using an audio clip that says "Show you then show your sport," VanZant used a photo of herself dressed in a tan bathing suit, seductively posing in nature before using a video clip of one of her past fights.

Some fans are asking VanZant to retire as it seems her heart isn't in it anymore and she is too focused on her OnlyFans.

One user commented, "Better start working out now in that case so your entire camp isn’t just a weight cut." Another Instagram user said something similar, writing, "She isn’t a fighter anymore, just IG thirst trap now."

Others, however, were excited to see VanZant's reel as one of her followers commented, "Can’t wait!! ??."

The 28-year-old is currently 0-2 since signing with the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship following her release from the UFC in 2020.

The fight against Charisa Sigala was first set for August as part of the BKFC 27, but then VanZant was pulled, leaving her pissed off.

“I did not pull from my fight!!!! I was pulled! I am pissed off and heartbroken! I wored [sic] my f–king ass off to be pulled a week before I am supposed to compete!!!!!” she said on social media at the time.

The rescheduled match was set to take place in Denver on October 15, but once again, it was canceled. It is unclear if her match with Sigala will be rescheduled again or canceled completely, but at this time, there is no rematch date set.

Paige VanZant’s Move To OnlyFans

At one point in time, the 28-year-old refused to go the OnlyFans route and decided to make her own fan site. “I work hard for my body. I work hard for who I am, and there’s a side of me that’s extremely girly and feminine, and I get to share that on my fan site” VanZant said in an interview with MMA Fighting earlier this year.

“Now I think it’s becoming a lot more acceptable. Before, the OnlyFans was seen more for just like porn stars. It was a little bit more X-rated, just the view from the public. Not saying that’s actually what people have on there, but I wanted to do it my own way. I wanted to do it professionally and have my own website and that’s what I’ve done,” she continued.

However, she has since changed her mind on her view with OnlyFans, joining the website and releasing the following statement, “I don’t have to, when I’m done fighting, get a regular job and have to go back to work. I’m not planning for when I retire to go to college or try to figure out what’s next in my life. I’m able to just fight and save money and plan when I want to retire, I can just retire.”
