Paige VanZant to headline BKFC London

Paige VanZant has a confirmed date for her return to the squared circle. 

BKFC will be making its promotional European debut in London on July 9th of this year and at the top of the card will be former UFC strawweight contender Paige “12 Gauge” VanZant. 

After signing a multi-fight deal with BKFC in 2021, VanZant has suffered defeats in her first two bouts with the promotion. After falling short against Britain Hart-Beltran and Rachael Ostovich, there were discussions on if she would return to fight out the remainder of her contract. 

Last month, BKFC president David Feldman put an end to that discussion as he told MMAJunkie that VanZant will “definitely be back.”


VanZant also recently signed with All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and will join the world of professional wrestling. Though signed to AEW, she will finish out her BKFC contract and will headline their London showing. 

There is no announced opponent for the 28-year-old yet, but once there is we will let you know here at MyMMANews.
