Ex-UFC fighter Paige VanZant, coming off a bare-knuckle fighting debut loss where she was lit up and suffered some pounding to her left eye, has healed up and she’s back to her private side gig creating content for clients who begged her to open an OnlyFans page. Instead of giving profits to OnlyFans, VanZant made a page where subscribers pay $10 a month.
While Chris Evert was sucking down Lipton ice tea in the 1980s to make money on the side, modern-day female athletes like VanZant, who is on record saying the pay in the UFC isn’t great, have turned to slinging products on Instagram or going a step further and cranking out content the hornballs are willing to pay $10 month to see.
VanZant, 26, told media outlets she’s now making ten times what the UFC was paying her for bare-knuckle fighting. “I was in the UFC for six years getting paid $40,000 (to show) and $40,000 (to win), and now I’m getting ten times that doing what I love,” Paige said.
So after years of being beaten up for the same pay as a plumber, it’s time for Paige to fire up the hornballs, collect that fight money while she can and sock it all always in a Roth IRA or however she’s investing. There’s no time to waste if Paige wants to be sipping those vodka-cucumber tonics like Chris Evert living that country club lifestyle.
Hoover vac those dollars while you can, girl.
