Paige VanZant has sold a ‘Kiss Card’ for more than £10,000.
The former UFC fighter kissed and autographed a card that includes a photo of herself, where she then listed the bizarre piece of memorabilia on eBay.

VanZant even uploaded a picture of her kissing the card to prove it is real before desperate fans started offering huge amounts of money to purchase it.
The 28-year-old was inundated with 102 offers for her first ‘Kiss Card’ and one lucky fan eventually won the bidding war with an eyewatering £10,700 offer.
VanZant took social media to confirm the sale, she wrote: “Officially sold my first ever kiss card.
“Thank you to everyone who bid. This was a really cool experience for me.”
’12 Gauge’ first made a name for herself in MMA but hasn’t competed in the sport since leaving the UFC with an 8-5 record in 2020.
The American signed a lucrative contract with Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship [BKFC] and has fought twice for the promotion, suffering decision defeats against Rachael Ostovich and Britain Hart.

Last month, BKFC president Dave Feldman revealed that VanZant may have fought in his organization for the last time during an interview with Mirror Fighting.
He said: “I’m going to be talking to her this week and there’s a possibility that she returns on a big card we’ve got in April.
“If she doesn’t, then it’s probable that she won’t be coming back to BKFC.
“She’s making a lot of money doing her other businesses and maybe she doesn’t want to do this anymore.”
It’s currently unclear if VanZant will return to fighting after finding success on OnlyFans
VanZant has parlayed her fight fame into a modelling career and she is believed to make serious money on OnlyFans and her own personal website.
‘PVZ’ is also signed to professional wrestling promotion AEW, but she hasn’t made an appearance since May 2022 and it’s currently unclear if she’ll return anytime soon.
It seems right now, VanZant is content cashing in online and you can’t blame her when she can make so much money for simply kissing a piece of card.
