Former UFC star turned Bare Knuckles Boxing fighter Paige VanZant was upset in the ring this weekend.
VanZant, 27, moved to 0-2 as a bare knuckle fighter when she was upset by Rachael Ostovich. The former UFC star took the loss in the Bare Knuckle FC 19 main event.
The fighting star appears to be in good spirits following the loss, at least.
VanZant took to Instagram to show off her hand injuries, smiling through them (and the loss).
“Guess what b—–s???!! I’m still smiling!!! My story is full of setbacks, road blocks and detours. But, it is also filled with major comebacks, peace in my soul and a grace that saved my life. I promise you this, I would endure this pain everyday of my life over the pain of regret. I am going to keep chasing my dream one step at a time. 99.9% of the people on earth would not dare do what I do. This story will be even better then my first. And if you haven’t read my book before click the link in my bio. That is real pain. This is just a bad chapter. And to anyone out there struggling. Pain is only for a moment. The world may be dark and love to hate on you, but darkness does not drive out darkness only light can do that. So DO NOT STOP SHINING!!!!” she wrote.
Those hands look pretty painful, but good for VanZant for smiling through it all.
VanZant hasn’t had an easy time in her transition from the UFC, but it’s clear that she has no intentions of quitting.
