There won’t be any more family game nights at the VanZant household.
It’s not that the superstar of the family, UFC strawweight Paige VanZant, isn’t around anymore. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Despite being one of the most popular fighters in her division, the 21-year-old still makes it a point to spend ‘almost every weekend’ with her parents.
But as much as she loves her family, that doesn’t stop Paige from flying off the rails when bragging rites are on the line.
“I’m a naturally competitive, aggressive person,” VanZant admitted to Yahoo Sports. “We used to have family game nights, and if I lost, I would get violent and punch my brother, and I would throw the board in people’s faces…”
“Yeah, so we canceled family game night.”
It might all seem a little extreme, getting that worked up over a harmless board game.
But then again, when you’re a professional fighter, what’s extreme?
Plus, it’s not like Paige is still that way. She is reformed. She has matured. She is wiser.Read More »from UFC strawweight Paige VanZant on cusp of superstardom ahead of UFC 191
