Former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey is making her pro wrestling debut at WWE Wrestlemania 34, teaming with Kurt Angle against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon.
Paige VanZant is another popular UFC fighter and she would love the opportunity to work with the WWE one day.
“It’s just another platform for us UFC fighters to make a name for ourselves,” VanZant said to MMA Junkie. “I know Ronda is going to do awesome at it, and she’s going to make a name for herself in the WWE. I’m a fighter first and foremost, but if the opportunity ever came knocking, I’m not one to turn opportunities down. I think it’s an amazing organization, and I’d definitely love to work with them.”
PVZ is still recovering from a broken arm suffered at UFC Fight Night St. Louis, but the fighter did feel awesome fighting prior to the injury.
“I felt awesome, and that was the biggest thing that was unfortunate for me,” VanZant said. “It’s how good I felt at that division. I felt great going into it. I felt great fighting at flyweight. And to have to not win the fight because of a broken arm – I threw the punch myself. She didn’t break it. I broke my arm all by myself on her head, so it sucks.”
VanZant stated in the past that she could be back in action after six months of recovering time, so the fighter could compete once more before the year ends.
