Does anyone else think PVZ is more than a little overrated?

Very overrated - If she wasn't so damn good looking, the UFC would have tossed her a long time ago.
I do like watching her fight though

Of course, but I don't mind, even a little.

Yes she is. I still have a hard time believing she beat the crap out of Felice Herrig like she did.

Felice was on ufc unfiltered podcast a couple months ago and talked about that fight with Paige. I forget the exact condition or injury but she wasn’t very healthy going into that fight. Based on more recent results of both fighters it seems like a valid excuse.

Unfortunately for fight fans hoping to see Shevchenko and VanZant throw down this winter, BJPENN.com has learned that “PVZ” has declined an offer to fight with “The Bullet”.

“Paige’s team turned down the fight,” Shevchenko’s manager told Chris Taylor. “Not surprising.”

Taylor asked if the UFC had made an official offer to Paige VanZant regarding a potential fight with Shevchenko.

“That is our understanding.” stated Shevchenko’s manager. “We are discussing other options now.”

The people supposedly who want to see Valentina vs Paige are not actual "fight" fans. I don't know a single person who would pay to watch that.

It's something that makes no sense whatsoever. I don't think she is rated by people who know anything about fighting, though. People who are only into the show part may have some interest, I suppose. And we did see her take a LOT of punishment and continue moving forward, so I don't question her heart, only whether she has enough fighting instinct to learn how to attack.

I don't know why the UFC would even propose such a fight in a serious fashion. Maybe just some publicity stunt for the new division and they knew Paige would turn it down. Paige did say she'd fight Ronda at 125, but who knows how serious that even was.

From the immortal keyboard of Frank Pozen:

Paige VanZant vs Jessica Rose Clark added to Jan. 14 UFC show

Guillherme Cruz of MMA Fighting reported this morning that Paige VanZant vs Jessica Rose Clark has been added to UFC Fight Night 124 Jan. 14 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis. No confirmation yet from the UFC. After she won her fight on Saturday, Jessy Jess said she wanted to fight Paige at Flyweight. Paige was supposed to fight Jessica Eye a few months ago but pulled out due to a back injury. When the UFC tried to rebook that fight, Paige turned it down. So now its ironic that both are on this show fighting different opponents. It certainly is a headscratcher. Recently Paige tweeted that she was getting the first Flyweight title shot. It would not have surprised me if the UFC had given Paige a title shot except I don't think the timing was right. So she's doing this fight first and then we'll see. The last time we saw Paige, she was getting choked out by Michelle Waterson. Since then she has moved to Gracie Barra in Portland. She is now under the influence of Chael Sonnen. We'll soon find out if that's a good thing. I thought she was regressing at Team Alpha Male. Sometimes a change is needed. It's a good opportunity for Jessy Jess to beat a high profile opponent who may not be much of a fighter. We shall see.
