Paige VanZant suffers shock loss on bare-knuckle boxing debut as Britain Hart beats ex-UFC star at BKFC 16

PAIGE VANZANT suffered a shock upset loss on her bare-knuckle boxing debut.

The beautiful former UFC fighter left the MMA promotion with a sliding 8-5 record and claimed she could earn 10x more in BKFC.

So Saturday night’s bow against underdog Britain Hart was supposed to be a soft welcoming for the bombshell.

After the win, Hart, 31, said: “I love Paige VanZant, she was an ideal to me because she was a pretty girl who could break the limits.

“I’m not a person though, I’m not. I’m a f***ing feeling and all of you guys are gonna feel it.

“I make this moment about the people who believe, not the people who don’t believe.

“This is not to my haters, this is not to the people who didn’t believe in me, this isn’t for the people who said Paige VanZant was going to win.

“This is for the people that said I could.”

PVZ, 26, was bullied in the clinch and not powerful enough with her ungloved punches to get the much-needed win.

Social media star VanZant started well, jabbing and moving far better than her unknown rival.

But Hart soon sussed that VanZant lacked the tools to hurt her and started to walk her down.

Hart dominated the second-round clinches and a welt started to grow under PVZ’s left eye.

PVZ started that fourth round with some fresh impetus but she was stunned by a little right hand that stopped her flow.

Then Hart then smashed a huge right hand into VanZant’s jaw but she somehow swallowed the meaty dig.

Hart’s corner told her, before the fifth and final two-minute round, that she was about to change her life.

And she went out and did it by surviving a late desperate barrage and getting the nod from the judges who all scored it 49-46.
