Paige VanZant takes to Instagram to share news of another arm surgery

Paige VanZant’s octagon return is delayed further by another surgery on her arm.

Paige VanZant injured her arm in a fight in January with Jessica-Rose Clark. She had an initial surgery to repair the broken arm, but now it seems she needs a second, more serious surgery to fix the problem. She’s lost three of her last four fights, so I’m sure she’s chomping at the bit to get back into the cage and earn a victory.

Her arm simply isn’t healing. She wrote that much via Instagram saying.

“Unfortunately and sadly have to inform all of my fans who have been standing by my side that my arm surgery has failed. 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’ll 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.”

Sounds pretty painful. Everyone at MikeSwick.com wishes Paige a speedy recovery.
