In a sport dominated almost completely by men, MMA, Paige VanZant is looking to break the glass ceiling this October when she becomes the youngest woman ever to fight in a UFC match. While her 3-1 record may not seem all that impressive, just take into consideration that she’s achieved such a record at a much younger age than Gina Carano. Paige VanZant gets a lot of comparisons to Carano, which is already a good sign that she’s got the talent to make it as a professional. [photo via...]

Just a few weeks ago, it seemed as if her career in the UFC was over before it even began when she was disqualified from consideration for season 20 of The Ultimate Fighter because she wasn’t yet 21. After a rousing internet campaign, UFC President Dana White decided to let VanZant fight in her first UFC match on October 4 in Halifax, Nova Scotia against the undefeated Kailin Curran.

This 115-lb powerhouse is chomping at the bit to show the world what she’s made of, and we can’t wait to see her in action in the Octagon. Anyone who saw her rear naked choke on Courtney Himes knows that this little firecracker packs a wallop, and now it’s time for her to put her skills to the greatest test of them all. Frankly, Paige VanZant is a no-brainer choice for the woman who won the week–and will do a lot more winning in the future…
