MF & DAZN X Series 15: Brooke vs. VanZant

Round One

Elle Brooke, often underestimated despite holding her own in previous influencer matchups, proved she wasn’t messing around from the moment the fight began.

Paige VanZant, the overwhelming favorite, came out aggressively, delivering combinations aimed at intimidating Brooke. The strategy was clear: overwhelm Brooke with her MMA and Bare Knuckle Boxing experience.

However, after withstanding a few flurries, Brooke fired back, signaling that VanZant needed to stay on guard. In a swift move, Brooke landed a brutal hook to VanZant’s jaw, reminiscent of her knockout of AJ Bunker, sending VanZant crumpling to the mat.

Round Two

In round two, VanZant’s experience and technique began to shine. Unrattled by her round one knockdown, VanZant used her jab to keep Brooke at bay for most of the round.

VanZant landed several punishing combinations, but credit to Brooke for taking them all and holding her ground. This round was easily scored in VanZant’s favor.

Round Three

With her corner urging her to stay on the attack, VanZant landed a few well-timed jabs on Brooke. However, it was Brooke who landed the bigger blows.
