Women’s UFC flyweight Paige VanZant is coming off of a tough loss following a brutal injury that left the fighter with a broken arm. Now “12 Gauge” has come forward with an update on her health and fighting future.
Paige VanZant faced off against Jessica-Rose Clark back at UFC Fight Night 124, ultimately suffering a unanimous decision loss to the fighter. However, VanZant suffered a tough injury early in the fight.
Having broken her arm, “12 Gauge” toughed out most of the match up in severe pain. Following the fight, VanZant had to seek medical attention for her wound.
Speaking to TMZ Sports, VanZant revealed that she is only a few months away from being able to train striking with her injured hand.
“Three months until I’m back punching with my right hand. I know I’ll have a fight in six months, and that’s guaranteed. I’m staying in good shape, and I’m going to be knocking people out. I feel like I’m still in that title contention spot in the 125 division. I know everybody calls me out, so we’ll just pick somebody from the list and take ’em out.”
The fighter has since also taken to social media to share a set of stunning photos with her dedicated following of fight fans. Check them out below:
