Paige VanZant says she's earned more money in 24 hours on OnlyFans than in her entire UFC career

Paige VanZant claims that OnlyFans has given her more money than her UFC career after deciding to make her own content online

Don’t let your day job stop you from getting the big bucks, especially if the pay out is more than you’ve ever seen.

That’s what ex-UFC star Paige VanZant did after deciding to jump into the online content creation world after formerly managing a modelling website on the side of her main gig.

Speaking to Barstool Sports’ OnlyStans Show, the 29- year-old sportswoman admitted that joining the popular content website OnlyFans has massively paid off for her, and that she even made more money in 24-hours of OF than she has from her entire UFC fighting career.

When host bought up the topic of money - namely the comparison between UF and OF - VanZant immediately confirmed that the latter pays a lot better.

She explained: “Yes, OnlyFans has been my largest source of income, I would say combined in my fighting career, I think I’ve made more money in 24 hours on OnlyFans than I have in my entire fighting career.”

After making the crossover to a more ‘mainstream personality’ role outside of UFC fighting, VanZant said that she was fortunate that her endeavours away from fighting have been successful.

This comes after the mixed martial artist took a break from the ring and last fought back in 2021 at BKFC.

Speaking about her switch to spicy content last year, VanZant said: "I would say when I made the switch to OnlyFans...there’s a lot of stuff I’ve done in my career...I’ve been really fortunate that my career even outside of the UFC and outside of fighting has been pretty successful."

The fighter went on to OnlyFans last year and has since been making big bucks.

"I've worked pretty hard in other industries and trying to crossover to like I guess a more of a mainstream personality," she continued.

"But yes, OnlyFans is definitely been my largest source of income.

"I would say combined in my fighting.

"I think I made more money in 24 hours on OnlyFans than I had in my entire fighting career."

But this could be due to her thoughts on the gender pay gap as when speaking on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show, she disclosed that it would be difficult to quit her work outside of fighting due to the financial loss.

She said: "With endorsement deals and everything I pull in from social media, I would actually be [at] a loss just taking a fight and focusing on that.

"If I were to stop everything I do outside of fighting and take a fight, I would be at a loss financially.”

At least her OnlyFans stardom has paid off.
