Paige VanZant might make her Bare-Knuckle Fighting Championship return in April or May as per BKFC President Dave Feldman.

Speaking to MMA Fighting, Feldman revealed that Paige will indeed be making her return to BKFC in 2022 and that preliminary talks are underway.

“She’s going to be fighting again. We were thinking about throwing her on the KnuckleMania card, too. I thought it was too much and we needed to just spread it out a little. I don’t have an exact date but I’d love to get her back in April. It would be great to get her back and there’s a lot of talent out there that would be good opponents for her, April-May-ish. So we’re going to be talking to [her manager] Malki [Kawa] and hopefully, lock that in but we’ve already started the preliminary conversation. She knows that she’s going to get ready to fight soon,” he said.

VanZant has been going through a slow run in BKFC having lost two fights in the promotion lately. Feldman, however, thinks that VanZant will bounce back strongly.

“I’m confident that she will [fight for BKFC again]. Look, like I said before, she didn’t have to fight bare-knuckle. She had other options but she tested herself and then she lost. Then she came back and tested herself again and she lost [again]. But neither of those fights are you like ‘oh my god, Paige got her ass kicked!’ Neither of those fights at all. You were like ‘good fights and Paige lost.’ No big deal. Everybody said she fought tough. She fought very tough,” Feldman said.
