VanZant Only Sidelined A Month With Arm Fracture

Early this week it was announced that UFC star Paige VanZant had re-fractured her right arm for the third time.

In an update from the 24-year old fighter, it seems that she will only need to be out of action from four-to-six weeks.“So, it’s just a fracture right at the site of my screw,” VanZant said in her Instagram stories. “My arm is crazy swollen still, so we’re just waiting for the swelling to go down.

“We’re going to x-ray it in a month, and I think I will be good to go. What that means is I have to take a month off from contact. After that month is over I can sign a fight contract and get right into a fight camp.”

VanZant’s arm suffered a fracture in January of 2018, in the first round of her UFC Fight Night 124 loss to Jessica Rose-Clark. A second surgery would be required later in the year, after complications would continue for the UFC flyweight.

VanZant made her return at UFC on ESPN+ 1 in January, when she would submit Rachael Ostovich in the second round.

The Oregonian was slated to face Poliana Botelho at UFC 236, but would be pulled due to the injury.
