UFC strawweight fighter Paige VanZant, who lost to “The Karate Hottie” Michelle Waterson during Saturday night’s UFC Fight Night on FOX event, has confirmed that her management team has taken part in talks with WWE and that she would love to “transfer over” to the company once her mixed martial arts career comes to an end.

VanZant also said she she would love to “switch things up” in WWE by working as a heel, and also stated that The Rock is someone that she would love to work with. She also had the following to say:

“It’s definitely something I see myself competing in, I think it’s an amazing organisation and I would love to transfer into the WWE. Right now I am making a run at the UFC and I’m still really strong and confident in what I’m doing now but eventually, yeah I’d love to transfer over”

There had previously been talk about VanZant appearing at the recent WWE SummerSlam event; however, those plans never happened.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
