WWE legend Jim Ross has revealed the next UFC star that could become a valuable asset for WWE. No, it's not Conor McGregor or Rounda Rousey, it is in fact, Paige VanZant.
The two companies have a fairly strong working relationship, with Rousey appearing at WrestleMania alongside The Rock, and Brock Lesnar representing both companies in recent months for UFC 200 and WWE SummerSlam.
However, the next UFC star to potentially step foot in a squared circle could be VanZant, who has recently admitted that she's a huge fan of the company and wouldn't rule out getting involved with them in the future.

The 22-year-old has been away from the octagon in recent months whilst taking part in 'Dancing with the Stars', but she made her return to the sport last night, beating Bec Rawlings with a flying kick to the head.
Whilst talking to Sports Illustrated, VanZant admitted that she would love to work with WWE in the future, and that she'd love to keep them close just in case something arises down the road.
She said: "I'm a huge fan of WWE, and I definitely want to keep them close. Eventually, it's still something I would love to do."
These comments haven't gone unnoticed in the WWE circles and legendary commentator Jim Ross has been the first to speak about the UFC star possibly making the switch to World Wrestling Entertainment.
JR posted a new blog entry on his website and he spoke about VanZant, revealing that she could become a great investment/resource for the WWE in the future.
He wrote: "We met Paige at UFC 200 in Vegas and discovered that she was a big, WWE fan notwithstanding a lovely person in more ways than one.
"I think that Paige Van Zant can be a great investment/resource for WWE in the future."
