Faber: VanZant Hasn’t Been Around The Gym, Won’t Be Able to Represent The Team When She Fights
“You know what, Paige has left. She hasn’t been around at all. I guess she, I don’t know, I asked what was going on. She was renting a room in Sacramento, and the person who she was renting from got evicted and took all her money, and I don’t know, she hasn’t been around. I told her, let me know if there’s any way I can help. I think she’s out in Reno training with her jiu-jitsu people or something. I don’t know where she is, man, for like the last month and a half or so, so I haven’t seen her.”
“I just texted her yesterday to ask her how training is going. I haven’t heard back from her, so I don’t know, man,” Faber explained. “She’s 20 years old, she’s young. She’s a very good athlete, she’s still developing as a fighter, she believes in herself, she’s a great looking girl. I think she’s got a lot of potential. I mean, I would feel most comfortable if she was on the team. If she’s going to represent the team, she needs to be in the gym. And so as of right now, she’s not going to be able to represent the team when she fights.”
Urijah Faber disclosed to Ariel Hewlani on The MMA Hour that Paige VanZant hasn’t been at Urijah Faber’s Ultimate Fitness training with Team Alpha Male recently, and as a result will not be able to represent the team in her UFC debut unless something changes.
