Paige VanZant has her eyes on the WWE. Like Ronda Rousey before her, VanZant may find herself enjoying a Wrestlemania moment down the road.

VanZant, who knocked out Bec Rawlings with a devastating kick followed by a ground-and-pound, has apparently been a WWE fan since childhood, and now that she has attained fame as a UFC fighter and contestant on "Dancing With The Stars," she may have a fast-track to the squared circle.

"That'd be something I'd love to eventually venture into," VanZant said recently on John Pollock's MMA Report, as transcribed by FloSports. "I've always been a big fan of the WWE. They're a huge organization and a very successful organization. It'd be great."

People like Brock Lesnar and CM Punk have shown that it's possible to transition between the two, VanZant said.

VanZant also has a great appreciation for pro-wrestlers.

"I am a fan and I've always been a fan," VanZant said. "I think it's a really cool sport and to see how athletic they have to be from some of the stuff they do it's really cool."

Paige VanZant vs. Bayley? What about VanZant vs .Charlotte? Anything is possible in the WWE. If VanZant wants in, the WWE will likely find a way.
