Fans of combat sports can anticipate the return of Paige VanZant, as reports indicate she is poised to headline Misfits 15 on Saturday, May 25, facing off against OnlyFans personality Elle Brooke.

News of VanZant's comeback surfaced during a DAZN live stream for the Devin Haney vs. Ryan Garcia press conference, where it was inadvertently leaked that she would feature in the main event against Brooke. While neither Misfits nor the fighters involved have officially confirmed the matchup, hints from involved parties suggest that the boxing showdown is on the horizon.

Mams Taylor, the organizer of Misfits, added to the speculation with cryptic tweets following the accidental revelation of VanZant and Brooke's supposed headliner status.

VanZant (8-5 MMA, 0-2 BKFC) last competed in July 2021, suffering a decision loss to Rachael Ostovich at BKFC 19. Before transitioning to bare-knuckle boxing, she faced Britain Hart in her BKFC debut, ending in another decision loss. Notably, VanZant previously competed in the UFC, amassing a 5-4 record before departing with a submission loss to Amanda Ribas.

Recently, VanZant hinted at her return to boxing, expressing eagerness for the opportunity after accepting a match initially scheduled for March 23. However, the date was later postponed to May or June, allowing VanZant to prepare for her comeback bout.
