After the initial surgery didn’t take, Paige VanZant went back under the knife today to repair the damage sustained to her arm in her most recent UFC fight.

VanZant (7-4 MMA, 4-3 UFC) suffered a broken right arm in her unanimous-decision loss to Jessica-Rose Clark (9-6 MMA, 2-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 124 in January. She had surgery shortly after the flyweight contest, but months later it was discovered the healing process wasn’t going well.

Likely a product of returning to training “too quickly”, doctors decided a second procedure was best for VanZant to make a complete recovery. Today in Las Vegas, “12 Gauge” had a nearly four hour operation where bone fragments were taken from the hip and moved to the arm. She is now recovering and will return home to Portland on Monday, MMAjunkie confirmed with a member of her team.

I so much wish all the best for Paige, that she heals well and can make it back to UFC.

Even with the broken arm she showed so much heart in her fight with Clark.

I hope she recovers properly and then takes an undeserved fight with Jessica Eye where she gets her ass handed to her.

I do not like PVZ, probably really the only fighter I dislike.

She throws spinning back fists with no concept of range or technique, hard to feel bad for someone who fights so recklessly. Still hope she makes a full recovery and return, she's fun to watch.
