Paige VanZant has revealed the astronomical amount she earns from her OnlyFans account.
The former UFC star and bare-knuckle boxer claims she earned more in one day on the content-sharing site than in her entire fighting career.
“Yes, OnlyFans has definitely been my biggest earner,” VanZant said on OnlyStans Show.
“I would say in my fighting career, I think I made more money in 24 hours on OnlyFans than in my entire fighting career.”
The 29-year-old made her UFC debut in November 2014 as a 3-1 prospect with the same dream as many budding MMA fighters who want to become world champion.
Less than a year later, VanZant was an enhanced superstar earning three straight wins and a legion of new fans thanks to her fighting skills, good looks and endearing personality.
A sponsorship deal with Reebok soon landed her before she got the chance to appear on the popular reality show ‘Dancing with the Stars’ in 2016.
Unfortunately, VanZant’s rise in popularity coincided with a dip in form which saw her lose fights to Rose Namajunas, Michelle Waterson, Jessica-Rose Clark and Amanda Ribas.
Despite leaving MMA’s premier promotion with an unremarkable 5-4 record in 2020, “12 Gauge” was one of the hottest free agents in all of sport.
Eventually, she decided to sign with Bare-Knuckle Fighting Championship, which paid her $400,000 per fight, ten times what she earned in the UFC.
VanZant lost her first two fights with the promotion and hasn’t fought since being outplayed by Rachael Ostovich, whom she defeated in the UFC, at BKFC 19 in July 2021.
A few months earlier, the former MMA fighter launched her own private website after being nagged about joining OnlyFans, where she has now been among the top 0.01 earners for years.
It seems unlikely that fight fans will get to see VanZant compete anytime soon, as she continues to make big bucks by sharing exclusive content online.
