Paige VanZant tells fans to "come for the boobs" as date set for Ostovich bout

Paige VanZant will look to repeat her UFC victory over Rachael Ostovich when the pair meet in the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship in July.

VanZant beat Ostovich in January 2019 and will now meet her again in the bare-knuckle ring on July 23.

And with both fighters regularly posting sizzling snaps on Instagram, VanZant wasn't messing about in trying to sell the clash.

Alongside a picture of the official fight poster, VanZant wrote: "Come for the boobies, stay for the violence."

While Ostovich added: "It’s a Fight girl summer for meeeeeee. Let’s run this back real quick. See y’all July."

VanZant and Ostovich share over 3.5million Instagram followers, with VanZant boasting 2.8million alone.

VanZant left the UFC last year having previously suggested she can make more money through her social media accounts.

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.”

It didn't work with VanZant losing to Amanda Ribas in January.

Ostovich's final fight in the UFC came last November when she was finished by third-round TKO by Gina Mazany.

She hasn't actually tasted success in combat sports since 2017, losing her last three bouts, including to VanZant.

Upon signing her BKFC contract, she said: “I am so excited to fight in the fastest growing sport in the world. I'm looking forward to my debut in July.
