Paige VanZant's husband Austin Vanderford covered in blood after suffering nasty head gash in gruelling Bellator win

PAIGE VANZANT'S husband Austin Vanderford was left covered in his own blood in a violent win over Fabian Edwards at Bellator 259.

Vanderford was in control of much of the fight until he was hit by Edwards' elbow in the third round of their clash in Uncasville, Connecticut, on Friday night.

The blow opened up a huge cut in the middle of his forehead, and blood started pouring down his face.

However he carried on fighting despite the huge amount of blood from the wound, and a second one on the right side of his forehead.

Vanderford, 31, eventually won the three-round fight by unanimous decision by 30 to 27 scores from all three judges’ scorecards.

Vanderford was joined by his wife VanZant in the arena afterwards.

The pair became huge stars on Instagram last year during the initial lockdown when they posed naked for photos around their house.

He remains unbeaten in his 11-fight MMA career and could fight for a title in his next bout.

Vanzant, 27, quit UFC last year to join the bare knuckle boxing franchise.

The American lost the final bout of her contract against Amanda Ribas in July last year to finish with an 8-5 UFC record before signing with the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship in August.

She then went on to lose her opening bout for the company in a brutal bare-knuckle bow on points by Britain Hart.

VanZant has also created another money-spinner to boost her bank balance.

She launched an OnlyFans account that she uses to provide exclusive sexy snaps to paying fans.

But VanZant, who has 2.7million followers on Instagram, previously claimed she earns more money from social media.

VanZant is now being linked with a bare knuckle fight against Rachel Ostovich, who she beat in the UFC in January 2019.

The pair are expected to face off in a rematch in June or July as they are now both signed with BKFC.
