UFC strawweight fighter Paige VanZant has been recently criticised for posting a video of hers, which apparently was so 'racy' and 'slutty' that it drew the irk of certain MMA fighters. The video, as expected, has been deleted.

However, certain users have downloaded it at the perfect juncture so we can watch and judge if the video indeed was anything provocative, as it was claimed to be.

Basically a promotion for Reebok's "Black and White" clothing line of bras and panties, Paige, 23, has been seen flaunting her abs and her black bra in a seductive manner. However, no nudity is involved.

Her fellow mates in the UFC -- from bantamweight fighter Lauren Murphy to former Invicta FC champion Angela Hill -- have taken a dig at her for trying to getting the brownie points by taking advantage of her good looks.

Sheer jealousy?

Paige, who was the runners-up in the Dancing With the Stars US Season 22, along with her partner Mark Ballas, inked a solo deal with Reebok two years back and is one of the most prominent fighters in the UFC strawweight division.

The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blue-belter made her UFC debut in November 2014 and has a 4-2-0 record. Paige has even headlined two fight cards -- UFC Fight Night December 2015 against Rose Namajunas, and UFC Fight Night December 2016 against Michelle Waterson.

Of the 38 listed women's strawweight fighters by the UFC, Paige is one of the most prominent ones. Therefore, a tint of jealousy might not come as too much of a surprise from the likes of Lauren (1-3-0 UFC record) and Angela (three-straight UFC losses).

Paige, no doubt, found support from many fans as well.
