Paige VanZant and Britain Hart clash at Thursday’s weigh-ins for BKFC
Paige VanZant and Britain Hart were involved in a fierce bust-up in weighing before the Bare-knuckle boxing
battle. A fired-up Hart wasted no time in getting right in VanZant’s face – prompting the ex-MMA star
to shove and then grab her rival by the throat before officials stepped in to separate the women.
Hart blasted: “This ain’t f***ing MMA, you can’t choke.
“Get the fing rules right before you come into the fing game.
“How about that? Get the rules right. I will touch you first tomorrow.”
Hart continued to launch verbals after the staredown, with BKFC president David Feldman then stepping
in to break them out.
The American, who is a huge star on social media, makes her Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship bow
against former pro boxer Hart.
VanZant’s shock and brutal switch comes having been released by the UFC, where she left with an 8-5 MMA
And BKFC president David Feldman insists any fans skeptical of her transition should look at some of the
ex-UFC star’s gory battles in the cage as evidence she can take one to give one.
Feldman told SunSport: “People say she’s an ‘Instagram model’, that kind of thing, but at the end of the day if
you’ve seen her face in some of her fights she was a bloody mess.
“She’s not afraid of bleeding, of getting hit, and this is what this sport is about – if you can get hit and throw a
punch back you have a good chance of doing well.
