Justine Kish calls for Paige VanZant fight: I can’t take it anymore, she’s just a ‘stupid star’

Paige VanZant is a “stupid star,” and there is a better blonde in town, at least that’s what Justine Kish thinks as she wants a fight with ‘PVZ.’

Flyweight veteran and The Ultimate Fighter season 20 contestant Justine Kish is frustrated and wants a fight with Paige VanZant.

VanZant recently made headlines after stating she can make “way more money” posting on Instagram then she can fighting in the octagon. This is something that hasn’t sat well with Kish, taking to social media to call out VanZant.

“I can’t take it anymore,” Kish said. “Paige VanZant keeps acting like a super star but her actions lately prove that she’s just [a] stupid star. UFC match me up with this star. There’s a better blonde in town that actually wants to fight. The star can choose strawweight, flyweight, heavyweight, I don’t care because I can make any weight for this to happen. Excuses be gone. Let’s fight Paige VanZant.”

The injury-plagued Kish (6-2) hasn’t fought since suffering a split decision loss to Ji Yeon Kim in January 2018. The 31-year-old won six straight fights before losing her last two against Kim and Felice Herrig.

Meanwhile, VanZant (8-4) returned to the octagon at the beginning of 2019 to defeat Rachael Ostovich by submission. The 25-year-old, who has appeared on TV shows Dancing with the Stars and Chopped, has struggled with an arm injury since losing to Jessica-Rose Clark in 2018.
