Offbeat news from the world of sport
The dreaded nip slip is a common fear among female fighters, but Paige VanZant has provided the latest proof yet that it's probably a concern of the past.
Former UFC starlet VanZant has become no stranger to daring photoshoots since growing her career as a model and entrepreneur. The 28-year-old raised that raunchiness to new levels in a series of lingerie-clad snaps ahead of America's July 4 celebrations.
In the photoshoot, fellow fighter and husband Austin Vanderford can be seen suspending his wife of nearly four years in mid-air and locked in a steamy smooch. Another image shows VanZant and her beau walking away hand-in-hand in the grotto-pool setting, where the AEW wrestler's fishnet one-piece leaves little to the imagination.

The post was uploaded on Instagram in partnership with Ohrangutang, a website that sells products to improve wellness and sexual health, as well as sex toys and CBD items. The caption reads: "You don't find love, you build it. We need to celebrate more couples."
VanZant and Vanderford married in September 2018 when the former was in the midst of the slide that would lead to her UFC departure two years later. She's since had two fights in Bare Knuckle FC and is set to headline the forthcoming London event at Wembley against an as-year-unknown opponent on August 20.
It's not the first time the married couple have posed naked on camera, once conducting a nude workout without so much as a sweatband in sight. While VanZant's future in mixed martial arts is uncertain, Vanderford is currently signed with Bellator and lost a middleweight championship fight against Gegard Mousasi in February.
Do you think Paige VanZant will fight in the UFC again? Let us know in the comments section.
The comments section gave a largely positive response to the posts, with many showing appreciation for the message behind the caption. Others seemed to suggest the amount of skin on show was too excessive, as one user wrote: "These pictures are disgusting."
VanZant boasts 3.2million Instagram followers and has seen her popularity soar in a relatively short space of time considering she was still a UFC fighter just two years ago. She's spoken in the past of how she's become financially secure since she concentrated more on modelling and selling content via subscription sites.
It looked uncertain as to whether '12 Gauge' would fight again after losing in each of her BKFC fights to dates. However, UK fans can look forward to seeing one of the most popular brands in today's fight game live later this summer.
