Paige VanZant - Rising UFC star

If anyone was still questioning Paige VanZant's ability after her rousing UFC debut in November of 2014, they won't be anymore.

The 21-year-old former ring girl was labeled just a pretty face when she squared off with Kailin Curran at UFC on Fox 15 – when it was over, she was $50,000 richer after dominating her opponent en route to a performance of the night bonus from UFC president Dana White.

On Saturday, in front of pumped-up Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, VanZant put on a performance that should continue to quell any debate on just where exactly the blossoming flyweight belongs.
