Bungling UFC list Paige VanZant in same lightweight division as Conor McGregor after adding 2 STONE to her weight


THE UFC accidentally listed Paige VanZant as a lightweight on their website after adding TWO STONE to her weight.

VanZant is in line to face Amanda Ribas on July 11 on Fight Island, in a 125lb flyweight bout.

But bungling UFC had the 26-year-old down as weighing 155lb.

The UFC doesn't even have a women's lightweight division, instead only going as high as the 145lb featherweight limit.

VanZant would need to put on 30lb to become a 'ightweight, the division Khabib Nurmagomedov rules with Conor McGregor a former champion.

The flyweight uploaded her reaction to the UFC listing her accidental weight and shared it online.

VanZant says: “I was like, ‘That’s not possible'.

"I thought they edited the picture to get a response from me.

“I’m not at Team Alpha Male anymore, which is fine you know teams change.

"I’m so confused."

VanZant - who has posed nude alongside husband Austin Vanderford for cheeky Instagram posts throughout lockdown - has not fought since January 2018.

She beat Rachael Ostovich on points, bouncing back from consecutive defeats, firstly against Michelle Waterson and then Jessica-Rose Clark.

VanZant was set to meet Ribas in a strawweight bout in Brazil on March 14, but VanZant pulled out due to a reoccurring arm injury.
