VanZant Posts X-Ray Of Broken Arm
Sunday night, after suffering from an illness and lower back injury, Paige VanZant made her debut in the flyweight division.
And once again, VanZant was struck by the injury bug, as the popular fighter broke her arm in the opening round of her UFC St. Louis fight against Jessica Rose-Clark. And while many people believe the fight shoudl have been stopped as soon as her corner knew her arm was broken, VanZant battled Clark until the bitter end, and would lose via unanimous decision.
Early Sunday morning, VanZant updated her status via twitter, promising to be better and “stronger than ever” upon return.
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
