Former UFC fighter Paige VanZant has revealed that she now earns more on her OnlyFans account than she used to receive for fighting in a match. In case that is true, this could mean that VanZant could be earning over or almost a million dollars just for sharing her exclusive photos with fans and followers.

The news was shared by VanZant during an interview with Barstool Sports‘ Glenny Balls, who suggested that the former UFC flyweight division fighter must be earning more on her OnlyFans. VanZant didn’t deny this, sharing some clues on how much she makes from the content subscription service account.

“Yeah. I definitely have,” Paige VanZant said. “I would say when I made the switch to OnlyFans — there’s a lot of stuff I’ve done in my career. I’ve been really fortunate about my career. Even outside of the UFC and out of fighting has been pretty successful. I’ve worked pretty hard in other industries and trying to cross over, I guess [to] a more mainstream personality.

“But yes, OnlyFans has definitely been my largest source of income. I would say combined, in my fighting career,” she noted, “I think I made more money in 24 hours on OnlyFans than I had in my entire fighting career. Combined. Yeah.”

This is an interesting statement since VanZant reportedly used to earn more than $500,000 under Dana White’s deals. In the interview, VanZant initially shared fearing stigma but said, “It’s hard to walk away from that.”

VanZant used to fight in UFC but later turned to the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. Overall, the fighter has an MMA record of 8-5, with her last fight in July 2020. In 2021, after her appearance, she officially joined All Elite Wrestling in 2021, which resulted in her only fight at Double Or Nothing 2022.

Now, VanZant seems to be entirely focusing on her content business, including Instagram, where she has 3.2 million followers. Is she coming back to fight? The answer is unknown, but the fighter seems happy about her career earnings currently, which, then again, is reportedly bigger than what octagon used to offer.

“When you’re one of those people that you were born poor, you grew up poor, and then you become rich, it’s almost like you always just feel poor, so you always want to continue to work hard,” she confessed. “I am lucky I’m in a position where I have been able to help my family, my husband and I help our family and we do everything we can to bring everybody up to the table. So I guess for me, it justifies doing, you know, exclusive content knowing that I’m helping take care of everybody around me.”
