Paige VanZant UFC Rumors: Ronda Rousey Beef Put To Rest, 'We're Cool Actually' [VIDEO]
Paige VanZant insists she has no issues with Ronda Rousey.
"Rowdy" infamously and publicly cursed at the UFC fighter and former "Dancing with the Stars" competitor for congratulating Holly Holm for winning the UFC women's bantamweight championship at UFC 193 last November.
Rousey lost her first-ever UFC fight to Holm at the event, dropping the title to her. She hasn't returned to the Octagon since that defeat and it was recently revealed she won't be added to the UFC 205 card -- the first ever event the company puts on from Madison Square Garden.
Though it was an ugly incident with VanZant, the blonde bombshell said there is no beef between her and Rowdy, telling TMZ Sports that "we're cool actually," though she also admitted they haven't spoken since the altercation.
VanZant also said she's been enjoying Rousey's book "Your Fight/My Fight."
"It's really good and it's cool to kinda get inside and see the things that she's gone through that are similar to me," VanZant told TMZ Sports... "So yeah ... no worries there."
Rousey was definitely emotional following the loss to Holm, so it's not surprising she got frustrated, even if taking it out on VanZant wasn't the right thing to do. The former champion later admitted that she had suicidal thoughts following the loss and only got through it because of her boyfriend, fellow UFC star Travis Browne.
VanZant has bigger things to worry about than Rousey beef as she has a fight with Bec Rawlings at UFC Fight Night in Vancouver on Saturday.
Not that the UFC star was ever too concerned about the issue. She immediately put it to bed when the incident first came to light.
"I don't know, you're gonna have to ask Ronda, but I don't have a lot to say about it," VanZant told TMZ Sports in May. "She didn't scare me, it was just ... I don't know. A little bit of nonsense. ... I definitely think we'll bury the hatchet. I'm not too stressed about it. She was a little angry that day."
