ICYMI: Paige VanZant reveals she’s suffered another arm fracture

UFC flyweight Paige VanZant may find herself sitting out for an extended period of a time.

Last year, PVZ suffered an arm fracture in her flyweight debut. She fought to the judges scorecards but the injury kept her out all of 2018.

In January of this year, she returned, notching her first W at 125 pounds. On Thursday, she took to social media to reveal that she has suffered another fracture to the same arm.


She shared the following photo to her Instagram story:

Though never confirmed, reports circulated that VanZant was being targeted for the UFC 236 card in Atlanta, Georgia, versus Poliana Botelho. There is no current timeline for a return.

We wish Paige a speedy recovery!

  1. this silly bird keeps breaking her self bcuz her boob implants confused her immune system., diverting resources from her bone repair. 24 year olds should be recovering from injuries wiht scary speed but sometime is scarily wrong with her. couple with that her religious addition to mma (“grind…embrace…MMA life…come back stronger”, etc), and that she has no big sponsors now (only snake oil dubious topical ointment to sweat more) so she’s going to keep breaking her arm, which is now a cyborg assortment of flesh and bone and titanium.
    My god, Jessy Jess’s head must be thick as rock, to break PVZ’s arm in that spinning backfist.

  2. Paige needs to retire from MMA. She’s too fragile and too courageous for her own good. She can always open a gym and make a good living there.
