When UFC strawweight Paige VanZant signed an endorsement deal with Reebok two years ago, she faced backlash from several UFC fighters, such as fellow strawweight Carla Esparza, who didn’t think she had the skill to warrant such a promotional opportunity.
Just this past week, VanZant’s relationship with Rebook was the cause of more scrutiny, this time over a self-made ad that many thought was just a little bit too sexy.
VanZant has since taken down the video, but that didn’t stop other internet sleuths from digging it up.
The skin-flaunting promo drew the ire of such fighters as Angela Hill, Lauren Murphy, Ben Askren and Jeremy Kennedy.
Do you think the video called for such a reaction or is jealousy more at play?
