The talent swap between the WWE and UFC is ongoing. Days after it was announced that Brock Lesnar would return to the octagon despite being under contract with WWE, Mike Roberts of MMA Inc. reported that Paige VanZant is in preliminary talks with WWE about appearing at their SummerSlam pay-per-view on Aug. 21.
VanZant's popularity sky-rocketed when she was the runner-up on "Dancing with the Stars" this year.
The 22-year-old VanZant is originally from Dundee, Oregon but fights out of Sacramento, California. VanZant has been an active fighter since 2012 and her career MMA record is 6-2.
