We are not being metaphorical or figurative. The images of the physical tearing of this petite powerhouse is startling and not appropriate for those with a faint constitution. How intense are the images? A UFC website cautions its readers “WARNING: It gets a little graphic, but hey, it’s all fake, right?” This from a site that must assume its readers are used to a full-color display of gore and body fluid. We watched the tease video because we felt obliged to protect the sensitive eye(s) our loyal reader – we’re working on rebuilding our audience numbers. We should not have been eating baked ziti at the time, though. Perhaps it was the warm, flat red Kool-Aid or the bumpy ride over city streets, but our sensitive stomach did not react well to the imagery; neither did the Uber driver to what she saw in the back seat and the back of the seats of her otherwise spotless and odorless Prius.
Ms. VanZant has apparently done well in the UFC (like “KFC” but with people instead of poultry, we think) and is said to have a devastating kick attack. Nonetheless, she weighs just 115 pounds and stands just under five foot four inches tall. We can tell you from the video that she has a very flat stomach, straight spine and some sort of anemia in her abdomen. She is brave and tough and has proven her ability by fighting competitors in the UFC as well as the perhaps more formidable Dancing with the Stars.
Criss Angel’s Trick’d Up will appear on A&E at 9:00 pm on Wednesday, October 12th. We are told he will perform 30 illusions and will be joined by celebrity guests (in addition to Ms. VanZant) including: Gary Oldman, Paris Jackson, comedian Andrew Dice Clay, “Blackish” star Miles Brown, Latino pop superstar Belinda, DJ Steve Aoki, and UFC stars Frank Mir, Chuck Liddell, Randy Couture.
You can check out the teaser video showing the vivisection of Ms. VanZant here. It is very graphic and not suited for young people (under 30), older people (35 and up) or folks eating baked ziti in the back of a Prius.
