Paige VanZant To Have Further Surgery On Broken Arm

Paige VanZant has suffered an injury setback in her bid to recover from a broken arm she sustained in January earlier this year.

Paige VanZant has suffered a further injury setback.

Taking to Instagram this evening, VanZant revealed that the broken arm she suffered in January against Jessica-Rose Clark had not healed as hoped and that she would be having further surgery in July.

VanZant posted:

“Unfortunately and sadly, I have to inform all of my fans who have been standing by my side that my arm surgery has failed,” VanZant Wrote.

“For whatever reason, my bone still is totally broken in my arm and shows no sign of healing or progression.

“All that we can guess is that I went back to training too quickly and didn’t give my arm the proper time to heal without any motion.

“This is the downfall of athletes, pushing through pain when they should not.

“I will be going in for another more serious surgery next month where they will take bone fragments from my hip to fill the break and put another bigger plate in.

“I will take the time off to heal this go around.

“I will be back to the UFC and I will fight many more fights in the future.

“Send some prayers up for me for recovery. Thank you.”
