“It’s something that’s inside of me and I guess not a lot of people are born with that, it’s something I was born with. I’ve kind of had that my entire life. I’ve always been a bubbly and energetic and happy person but when I get upset, I get frustrated; when someone makes me mad, I definitely have a temper and I’ve had to deal with having a temper my whole life. But I’ve been able to target it into fighting and it just helps me that I have this amazing outlet and not a lot of people have seen my crazy, mean side.” VanZant said during an interview with Fox Sports.
