During her bout last night with Jessica – Rose Clark, Paige VanZant was heard telling her corner that she had broken her arm, and the flyweight’s post-fight x-rays confirmed that fact.
VanZant faced Clark on the main card of UFC Fight Night 124, and by the bout’s third round, she was rarely, if it all, throwing her right hand. After the final horn, VanZant immediately clutched her right arm, and moments later, Clark was awarded the unanimous decision win.
Well, since then, VanZant tweeted out the comments and image below. Last night’s bout marked the first time the 23 year-old had fought since December, 2016, when she was choked out by Michelle Waterson.
Well… I broke my arm in the first! I was able to finish the fight but as you can see, had a hard recovering and throwing my right. I’ll be back better and stronger than ever! 💪🏼🦁 it’s all apart of the fight game. God had other plans for me. 🙏🏼 darn spinning back fist. pic.twitter.com/v5DhSv5YxD
