Paige VanZant announces engagement

Esther Lin

Paige VanZant did a memorable run on “Dancing with the Stars,” but it looks like we’re never going to see her on “The Bachelorette.”

The popular UFC flyweight fighter announced on her Instagram that her boyfriend, Austin Vanderford, proposed to her on Sunday, and that she said yes.

Vanderford, 27, is an up-and-coming welterweight fighter out of Medford, Ore., who has a 3-0 record as a professional.

VanZant, 23, is coming off a recent loss to Jessica-Rose Clark in which she performed valiantly in going the distance after suffering a broken arm early in the fight.

I said yes!! @austinv170mma
