UFC strawweight Paige VanZant is quickly becoming one of the promotions most recognizable stars.

The 22-year-old has gone 4-1 while fighting under the UFC banner, most recently scoring a highlight reel knockout (flying switch kick) victory over Bec Rawlings at UFC on FOX 21 last month in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Her incredible victory over Rawlings earned “12 Gauge” a “performance of the night” bonus and marked the third stoppage win of her young UFC career.

Paige had previously scored finishes over opponents Kailin Curran (TKO) and Alex Chambers (submission) respectively.

In addition to her success inside of the octagon, Paige has also made a name for herself on television shows, namely “Dancing with the Stars” where she went all the way to the shows finals, eventually finishing in second place.

Paige VanZant is now scheduled to appear on Criss Angel’s upcoming television show “Trick’d Up” which will premiere on A&E on October 12.

The popular magician, Criss Angel, recently released a sneak preview for the show which features him performing a gruesome magic trick on the Sacramento native. In the clip (see below), Angel rips the budding UFC star (VanZant) in half, much to the disgust and horror of the crowd in attendance.

We have all seen Paige spill blood inside of the cage in the past, but watching her get ripped apart to a point where guts and intestines are hanging out of her is something I would prefer never to witness again.

Paige VanZant is currently awaiting her next octagon assignment from UFC officials.

“12 Gauge” has stated that she would like to return to the cage when the UFC invades her hometown of Sacramento, California, this December.
