Paige VanZant has sent UFC fans into meltdown with more nude photos while in self-isolation.

The UFC star had fans blushing on Wednesday when she posted a photo on Instagram showing her and fellow MMA fighter husband Austin Vanderford working out at home in the buff.

The photo showed VanZant sitting on an exercise ball while Vanderford did some chin-ups, both completely naked.

And the couple are clearly embracing the fact they can’t leave the house during the coronavirus crisis.

VanZant posted two more risque photos on Thursday, showing her and Vanderford cooking up a storm without their clothes on.

In one pic VanZant is covered only by an apron, while a cookbook is covering Vanderford’s bits.

“Uh, are we doing this right??”, VanZant wrote.

In the second pic they have their backs to the camera, but two glasses are covering them from being exposed.

“Whiskey or wine?” reads the caption.

Needless to say the comments flew thick and fast from stunned fans.

“Don’t fry any bacon so you don’t get splattered in those sensitive areas,” one fan wrote.

“You two are too funny, keep it going,” another added.

While another commented: “I’m confused as to why this isn’t how we are spending our quarantine????”

VanZant enlists Conor McGregor’s help

Ahead of her eagerly-awaited return to the Octagon, VanZant has been hitting the gym and making sure she’s in top shape.

The UFC star has been posting a number of photos and videos to social media to update fans on how she’s progressing.

Earlier VanZant uploaded a video punching and evading a swingball, asking Conor McGregor for some feedback, writing: “How did I do @notoriousmma??”.

“Excellent Paige! Slow it down and go through all the defensive patterns now. Catch the bar on the glove as well as hitting,” McGregor responded.

“Roll under it. Pull from it. Double the sequences up and mix others in. Catch hit catch. Hit pull hit catch hit. Hit roll hit roll pull hit. Etc etc.

“Turn the fist down also, knuckles horizontal! You will punch with the fist horizontal in a fight, over vertical, so work as you will fight.

“Habits worked in the gym become habits in the fight … this machine is perfect for you. Just out of the cast also. Good luck.”

VanZant has a 5-3 record in UFC but her career has been plagued by injuries.

She suffered her third arm fracture in 2019 and has been batting to get back in the Octagon ever since.
