Paige VanZant Wants To Fight Cardale Jones For The Nickname "12 Gauge"

Former Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones, on account of his rocket arm, has been given the nickname "12 Gauge." It turns out the Buffalo Bills signal-caller might have a challenger for rights to the moniker.

UFC fighter Paige VanZant, one of the more popular athletes in her field, told FOX Sports 1 that she's willing to fight Jones for the nickname. Of course, she's kidding - but it's still amusing.

">@PaigeVanzantUFC it's only ONE #12Gauge and we BOTH know it's me.

Who would win? VanZant would certainly have better technique and fighting skills, but Jones is 6-foot-5, 250 pounds. It'd be tough for her to prevail.
