Paige VanZant Met With Stephanie McMahon Last Week; Believes A Crossover Could Happen Down The Line

Paige VanZant isn't ruling out a potential WWE run down the line.

Speaking to MMA Weekly, VanZant revealed that she met with Stephanie McMahon while the two were at Web Summit in Portugal from Nov. 5 to Nov. 8.

"I’m not ready to leave the UFC just yet. I love being a professional fighter and I still have a long career ahead of me. I also think the WWE is an amazing organization and it’s a very athletic entertainment industry which would suit me,” she said. “There’s probably huge potential for a crossover down the line and of course I’m a big fan of what they do, so it would be great to be a part of. I got the opportunity to talk to Stephanie for a little bit on Tuesday which was great.”

VanZant has been very open about her desire to compete in WWE at some point in her career. She told Fightful's James Lynch back in July that she would "love to make an appearance in WWE," even before her UFC career is over.

VanZant hasn't fought since January 2018, where she dropped a unanimous decision to Jessica-Rose Clark. She has been sidelined for the past year with a broken arm. She's currently scheduled to face Rachael Ostovich on January 19, 2019.
