SiriusXM and Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) are teaming up to launch a new show hosted by Bare Knuckle FC’s newest star, Paige VanZant.  A former standout UFC fighter, VanZant signed a multi-fight promotional contract with BKFC last August and will be making her bare knuckle debut next month.

Starting today, January 20, at 5:00 pm ET VanZant will debut as the host of a new four-episode SiriusXM show, Knuckle Up Radio with Paige VanZant, that will chronicle her journey from the MMA octagon to the BKFC “Squared Circle.”  A new one-hour episode will air every Wednesday through February 10 exclusively on the SiriusXM Fight Nation channel.  Subscribers can tune in live on their SiriusXM radios or listen to episodes anytime after they debut on the SiriusXM app.

“I am really excited to be able to utilize such an incredible platform like SiriusXM to promote myself and my upcoming fight for Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship,” said VanZant.  “Hopefully this is an opportunity for fans to get to know me even deeper and on a more personal level.”

Prior to joining Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship, VanZant fought for the Ultimate Fighting Championship for six years, becoming one of the biggest stars competing in the strawweight and flyweight divisions.  With a huge social media following (@PaigeVanZant), she has become a crossover star whose popularity extends beyond the world of combat sports.  Outside the ring she is an author, model and also competed on Season 22 of Dancing with the Stars, where she finished in second place.

Veteran combat sports broadcaster Brian Soscia will be VanZant’s co-host on the show.

SiriusXM Fight Nation is available to subscribers nationwide on SiriusXM radios (channel 156), the SiriusXM app, and at home with Amazon Alexa, the Google Assistant or however you stream in the house.  For more information on SiriusXM Fight Nation, including host bios and a schedule of programming, please visit SiriusXM.com/FightNationSXM.
