UFC: Paige VanZant chokes out soldier

By Rafael Bandayrel

UFC contender Paige VanZant unintentionally put a United States troop during a United Service Organizations (USO) event.

VanZant, 24, was showing a crowd of soldiers to perform a rear-naked chokehold when the volunteer passed out and went limp, per TMZ Sports.

The soldier then collapsed when VanZant let go but UFC champion Max Holloway was there to catch and assist him until he regained consciousness.

It is unclear where the video was taken, but VanZant and Holloway were visiting bases in Spain, Afghanistan, Iraq, and South Korea this week as part of a USO tour.
