Paige VanZant has decided that for health reason she can not continue fighting in the Straw-weight , so now that the UFC is starting the flyweight division, she will take the opportunity to put on an extra 125lbs, claiming to be a better fighter as she eyes her fight with Jessica Eye.
“Jessica Eye was the only fighter available so we decided to take the fight. They are opening the flyweight division so it’s perfect. With The Ultimate Fighter emitting itself now, there will be many more rivals in flyweight . I’m going to feel much better just by not having to cut 10 pounds. My body will easily make 125 pounds. I know I ‘m going to be more athletic and stronger . “
