Paige VanZant Snaps Arm During Fight, Carries On For Two More Rounds
Holy smokes, Paige VanZant has got HANDS. Even when those hands are broken.
The MMA fighter took to the Octagon at UFC Fight Night 124 on Sunday, taking on Jessica-Rose Clark and things went south pretty quickly.
The Dancing with the Stars finalist cracked her right arm while delivering a spinning back fist only to continue brawling for a further two rounds.
In the end, Clark won the bout (which is totally understandable), but the fact PVZ shrugged off a broken arm in a mostly fist fight and attempted to lay waste to her opponent shows just how dedicated she is to the game.
Fair play Paige!
After the fight, Paige took to Instagram and wrote:
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.
Thank you to the @ufc and to my opponent. Thank you to my coaches and most importantly my head coach’s.
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.
If her UFC career did ever go to pot, Paige would be open to other avenues, most notably the WWE.
Speaking to TMZ, she said:
I love the WWE. I think that I would for sure be a good WWE Diva. We’ll see if that opportunity comes?
I would definitely go for it, if they come knocking on my door, I’m taking it. I love WWE, I would love it.
I have the personality for it. Yeah, when the time is right.
I reckon it’d be a great mix. Paige would be able to do a whole series of spinning back fists and not have to deal with any broken arms.
