VanZant is 0-2 in the organization after making the switch from MMA two years ago.

She also competes in All Elite Wrestling and documented her grueling training camp for the Sigala fight throughout the summer.

Away from the ring, Paige has carved out a career as a social media influencer and regularly posts racy photoshoots and workouts to her millions of fans.

She’s married to Bellator star Austin Vanderford, who lost for the second time in 2022 on August 13.

Why has VanZant vs Sigala been canceled?

Paige took to social media to rail at the decision, claiming she’d been “pulled” and it wasn’t her fault the fight had been postponed.

She said: “I did not pull from my fight. I was pulled.

“I am p***ed off and heartbroken. I worked my f***ing ass off to be pulled a week before I am supposed to compete.

“This is out of my control. I went an entire camp and weight cut to be pulled a week out.”

VanZant and Sigala’s fight was due to be the co-headliner at BKFC 27, supporting Mike Perry vs Julian Lane.

According to MMAJunkie, the fight has been pulled from the card so it can headline a date later this year in Denver, Colorado.

When will it now be held?

BKFC has been quick to announce that the fight will be rescheduled, rather than scrapped entirely.

The fight is now penciled in for Saturday, October 15.

Should the bout finally happen, it will be VanZant’s first fight of 2022.

She was last seen in BKFC last July, going down to Rachael Ostovich by unanimous decision.
