The WWE and UFC connection seems stronger than ever with both Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar making appearances on both shows in July. Paige VanZant hasn't ruled it out herself, either.
Two years ago when VanZant's success was at its apex, rumors were flying that the now-UFC strawweight was being sought out for a WWE appearance. It never ended up happening, and VanZant instead returned to the cage. When speaking to Fightful.com's James Lynch, VanZant was quick to say she'd like to make it happen.
"Yeah, definitely. Even before my career's over, I'd love to make an appearance in WWE. I love the organization and it's such a different form of athleticism, I think I'd have a great crossover because of my Dancing With The Stars Experience, and MMA experience, and athletic background. I'm focused right now on just healing my arm, I can't really do anything until that's done," said VanZant.
When Lynch asked Paige who she enjoyed watching, she noted "WWE Divas," a term not really used in the company outside of their reality show.
"I wouldn't say necessarily there's a specific person I like watching. I'm really into the WWE Divas, whenever the women are on, I focus on them. I pay attention (to Ronda) as much as I can. I would love to go to the live show," said VanZant. "I have a lot of things in the works, I'm still building up my career while I can."
