Ex-UFC stunner Paige VanZant refuses to wear deodorant while working out as 'there's always a man who smells worse’
PAIGE VANZANT gave a brilliant answer when asked about body odour and working out.
The ex-UFC star was grilled about whether she wears deodorant or not while in the gym.
The 27-year-old was taking part in a fan Q&A when the subject came up.
And she replied: "I figure there is always a man in the gym who smells worse than I do."
VanZant left UFC to take up bare knuckle boxing – signing a deal with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.
She takes on rival Rachael Ostovich next weekend having won their UFC bout in January 2019.
VanZant has been among the mixed martial artists calling for better pay in the UFC.
The 27-year-old claimed she has earned more money from setting up a fan site than fighting.
Speaking about PaigeFanZant.com, she said: "I will say when I signed with BKFC, the bare-knuckle boxing, I was making more money than I had made in my entire UFC career.
“Now I’m making more money than my entire BKFC contract in like a month. It’s pretty crazy.”

VanZant has no immediate plans to call time on her days as a fighter but feels financially stable enough to no longer compete.
She said: “I don’t have to, when I’m done fighting, get a regular job and have to go back to work.
"“I’m not planning for when I retire to go to college or try to figure out what’s next in my life.
"I’m able to just fight and save money and plan when I want to retire, I can just retire.”
I feel like I’m already seen as a sex symbol.
VanZant was initially hesitant about going through with the money-spinning endeavour, saying: “There was always this back and forth. There’s two sides of it.
"I didn’t want to put myself in a position where I would lose business opportunities based on having an exclusive content site, but I feel like I’m already seen as a sex symbol in the sports world.
"I might as well have the monetisation behind it. I wanted to do it on my own terms. So I actually joined Fan Time, it’s a separate company.
"I’m not with OnlyFans. It’s PaigeFanZant.com and it’s my own website and I have a lot of control over what goes on there. It’s basically me doing exclusive things. I’m proud to say I’m part of it.
“I work hard for my body. I work hard for who I am, and there’s a side of me that’s extremely girly and feminine, and I get to share that on my fan site. Now I think it’s becoming a lot more acceptable.
"Before, OnlyFans was seen more for just like porn stars. It was a little bit more X-rated, just the view from the public.
"Not saying that’s actually what people have on there, but I wanted to do it my own way.
"I wanted to do it professionally and have my own website and that’s what I’ve done.”
