Paige VanZant says she is getting title shot at flyweight

Paige VanZant

Is she or isn’t she?

Paige VanZant appeared to share some news on Twitter Saturday night when she said that her next fight would be the winner of the 125-pound Ultimate Fighter.

The UFC previously had three women’s divisions, but this year they added a 125-pound flyweight division. The winner of “The Ultimate Fighter 26” reality show will be the inaugural champion. VanZant is saying she will face that winner.

However, ESPN’s Brett Okamoto said that announcement from PVZ is premature.

VanZant’s pronouncement didn’t sit well with some fans. The 23-year-old has lost two of her last three fights as a strawweight, which is one weight class lower. Some are wondering why she would be getting a title shot at a higher class given her poor record of late.
