FORMER UFC stunner Paige VanZant revealed she earns more money posting pictures on Instagram than she did risking her health in the octagon.
VanZant, 28, hit out at UFC organisers for the lack of equal pay between men and women and quit Dana White’s promotion in 2020.
The American lost the final bout of her contract against Amanda Ribas to finish with an 8-5 UFC record before signing with the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.
VanZant has also created another money-spinner to boost her bank balance.
She launched an OnlyFans account that she uses to provide exclusive sexy snaps to paying fans.
But VanZant, who has 3.2million followers on Instagram, previously claimed she earns more money from social media.
During a revealing interview on Ariel Helwani’s MMA show, she said: “I make way more money sitting at home, posting pictures on Instagram, than I do fighting.
“When I did my contract negotiation the last time, the talk was, ‘I can’t pay you more than a female champion.’
“Okay, but why are comparing me to just women? All of us should be getting paid more in general.

“I want a significant pay raise, to be completely honest.
“I’ve just been extremely accomplished outside of the UFC, as well as inside of the UFC.
“Five wins in the UFC, four finishes, I’ve been main event twice, and I think someone with those accolades should be paid more.”
