Quotes by Paige VanZant
I’m used to being under pressure… luckily I perform well under pressure.
It’s just such a blessing that I get to be paid for something that I’m in love with.
I used to be a cheerleader, but fighting just seemed more, “me”. So I went that route.
I like the wrestling and executing the throws. My dad was a wrestler and he showed me some of those techniques, too.
I want to go as far as it will take me. I would love to go pro, but if that doesn’t happen, I am a gourmet chef and would like to open my own restaurant.
My father wanted me to learn self-defense, so I enrolled in the Academy and loved it from the start.
