Paige VanZant signed to UFC

Paige VanZant had hoped to be a part of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) season 20. However, the UFC requires TUF participants to be of legal drinking age, so VanZant has been signed directly to the UFC instead.   While VanZant will not be able to contest the strawweight championship right away, as that will be determined by the results of TUF 20, Team Alpha Male’s Urijah Faber seems to like her chances. Speaking to BloodyElbow, Faber said:

I haven’t taken a look at that strawweight division yet, but she works hard and she’s got a good head on her shoulders
