“Momma Cyborg” Offers To Nurse Paige VanZant Back To Health

Paige VanZant and Cris Cyborg.

Monday afternoon we learned that UFC sweetheart Paige VanZant was out of her scheduled UFC 216 fight against Jessica Eye.

On less than two-weeks notice the top female fighting prospect got injured, and sick with several different ailments, making a fight impossible in the near future.


VanZant was hoping to get a fresh start in the UFC’s newly formed flyweight division, but with her long list of ailments her debut at 125lbs will have to wait.

“It’s a big cut for me. I’m a lot heavier than people realize,” she said  “I was honestly killing myself for this sport. In my last I want to say two fights or three fights, I’ve passed out in my bathroom. This last one, I passed out and had the doctors almost not cleared me for the fight. “I’m a big advocate for body positivity, and I was putting myself through an eating disorder to make weight,” she continued. “And it became not fun for me anymore. I hate cutting. I hated the process. Obviously, passing out on your bathroom floor is not fun, because you’re dying in a bathtub.”

Taking to twitter, Paige revealed what caused her sudden withdrawal from UFC 216.

She stated, “When it rains it pours. Herniated disc, double ear infection, sinus infection, pink eye and ringworm all right now! ? send me good vibes.”

Now, her friend and one-time training partner, UFC female featherweight champion Cris Cyborg has offered her assistance to the UFC strawweight turned flyweight.

Taking to twitter, Cyborg stated, “Momma Cyborg gonna send some Chicken Soup.”

What would you do if Cris Cyborg was your nurse?
