Paige VanZant will officially make her Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) debut on February 5.
VanZant confirmed the booking on her official Instagram.
"Best of 2020 is this picture right here," PVZ captioned a post of her and manager Malki Kawa. "Bout agreement signed for my Bare Knucle FC debut. February 5th baby!!!! Let’s go!!"
The former UFC prospect will box Britain Hart, according to a report from MMA Fighting. Hart is a three-fight veteran of BKFC with a TKO win over Randine Elkholm, plus fights against Bec Rawlings and Christine Ferea.
VanZant has not competed in combat sports since losing via first-round submission to Amanda Ribas at UFC 251 on July 12, 2020. PVZ ended her UFC tenure with a 5-4 run. She finished the likes of Felice Herrig and Rawlings, but fell short to Michelle Waterson and Rose Namajunas.
BKFC President David Feldman previously expressed his intention to book VanZant on Super Bowl weekend. The monumental sporting event is currently scheduled for Sunday, February 7.
