PAIGE VANZANT suffered a shock upset loss on her bare-knuckle boxing debut.
The beautiful former UFC fighter left the MMA promotion with a sliding 8-5 record and claimed she could earn 10x more in BKFC.
So Saturday night’s bow against underdog Britain Hart was supposed to be a soft welcoming for the bombshell.
But PVZ was bullied in the clinch and not powerful enough with her ungloved punches to get the much-needed win.
Social media star VanZant started well, jabbing and moving far better than her unknown rival.
But Hart soon sussed that VanZant lacked the tools to hurt her and started to walk her down.
Hart dominated the second-round clinches and a welt started to grow under PVZ’s left eye.
PVZ started that fourth round with some fresh impetus but she was stunned by a little right hand that stopped her flow.

Then Hart then smashed a huge right hand into VanZant’s jaw but she somehow swallowed the meaty dig.
Hart’s corner told her, before the fifth and final two-minute round, that she was about to change her life.
And she went out and did it by surviving a late desperate barrage and getting the nod from the judges who all scored it 49-46.
