Paige VanZant says that OnlyFans has earned her more money in 24 hours than her entire fight career combined. The flyweight joined the website a year ago with massive success.

What’s OnlyFans

It originally was a website that had the same idea as Instagram. However, its twist is that it’s made up of paid content. While it was planned to be a website where content creators could upload any content, that part didn’t pan out. Consequently, the website developed a reputation for hosting not-safe-for-work (NSFW for short) photos and videos.

Although its creators are 70 percent women, it’s a flourishing business for those willing to enter. Even a few other celebrities on the website post their own kinds of content. A few of these would be Iggy Azalea, Mia Khalifa, and DJ Khaled.

Admittedly, some celebrities don’t post NSFW content and instead treat it like a program. DJ Khaled offers insight and talks on his OnlyFans. On the other hand, internet denizens mostly know it for its NSFW creators.

She starts answering the question by being grateful for her successful career, even out of the UFC.

“OnlyFans has definitely been my largest source of income. I think I made more money in 24 hours on OnlyFans than I had in my entire fighting career.”

Considering that VanZant has been fighting since 2012, her earnings for nine years being beaten by OnlyFans in 24 hours is a remarkable feat. This isn’t that big of a surprise for users who have heard of the saucy website. Creators have been earning tons off of OnlyFans, especially when they cause controversy for marketing, like Belle Delphine with her bathwater.

Paige VanZant is doing well but fans aren’t happy

The comment section is a mixed bag, with some users supporting her choice while others criticize the men who continue to enable this type of behavior.

“Sad world but that’s literally their best way to make millions cuz of down bad men.”

Time will only tell if Paige’s OnlyFans will continue to do well. Despite the negativity from some of the comments, the fact that she made a lot of money in just 24 hours contradicts the hate.
