Recently, she remarked that Ben Askren was a “wrestler” as opposed to a fighter. Askren, as you can imagine, took exception to that, with PVZ recently clarifying what she meant.

“Okay, so the comparison — that’s one thing I have to learn about working with promotions like this. Whatever you say, they are filming it and they’re gonna use it, push it,” VanZant said. “No, Ben Askren, incredible résumé, especially in wrestling. The comparison was totally edited out of context.

“There’s no reason to speak about it again, but sorry if I hurt his feelings,” VanZant added.
