The American will be back in action when she takes on Amanda Ribas at the UFC Fight Island on July 11. 

But VanZant, who has 2.5million followers on Instagram, previously claimed she earns more money from social media.

During a revealing interview on Ariel Helwani’s MMA show last year, she said: “I make way more money sitting at home, posting pictures on Instagram, than I do fighting.

“When I did my contract negotiation the last time, the talk was, ‘I can’t pay you more than a female champion.’

“Okay, but why are comparing me to just women? All of us should be getting paid more in general.

“I want a significant pay raise, to be completely honest.

“I’ve just been extremely accomplished outside of the UFC, as well as inside of the UFC.

“Five wins in the UFC, four finishes, I’ve been main event twice, and I think someone with those accolades should be paid more.”
