Paige VanZant Teams Up With Her Model Friend For Some Oil Wrestling – OutKick
Paige VanZant’s Return to Combat Sports
Paige VanZant, the American mixed martial artist and former UFC fighter, has recently made her return to combat sports. However, this time it’s not in the octagon. Instead, VanZant has teamed up with her model friend for a different kind of combat – oil wrestling!
The Controversial Nature of Oil Wrestling
Oil wrestling is a form of wrestling where the competitors are covered in oil to prevent them from getting a firm grip on each other. This makes it much more difficult to gain an advantage and makes the sport more entertaining to watch for many spectators. However, it is not without its detractors. Some people have criticized the sport for objectifying women and promoting sexualized performances.
VanZant’s Take on Oil Wrestling
VanZant, for her part, has defended the sport. In an interview with OutKick, she said that “it’s just two girls having fun.” She described the experience as “awesome” and said that she felt empowered by participating in the sport.
The Public’s Reaction
As with anything controversial, the public’s reaction to VanZant’s oil wrestling has been mixed. Some people have applauded her for trying something new and breaking out of the traditional combat sports mold. Others have criticized her for what they see as a step backwards for women’s sports and perpetuating a culture of objectification.
The Future of VanZant’s Combat Sports Career
Regardless of what people think about her foray into oil wrestling, it is clear that VanZant is not afraid to take risks and try new things. It remains to be seen whether this will translate to success in the traditional combat sports world, but one thing is for sure – she is definitely not afraid to experiment.
