The UFC flyweight has suffered two previous arm fractures, including one that kept her out of action a full year from last January to this January.
She didn’t give details of how she suffered her latest injury or the severity of it.
However, VanZant did share a picture to her Instagram story of the arm in question:
Injury puts stop to UFC 236 talk
The injury appears to settle reports over VanZant’s rumoured appearance on the upcoming UFC 236 card in Atlanta.
VanZant was reportedly slated to face either Poliana Botelho or Montana De La Rosa at the April 13 event.
On Wednesday, De La Rosa told BJPenn.com that any reported fight was off because VanZant had claimed to be injured.
“Now Paige is claiming her arm is hurt, so she can’t fight that Poliana girl or me, so we aren’t sure what is happening,” De La Rosa said.
“I’m just waiting to hear.”
VanZant’s social media announcement appears to confirm that what De La Rosa had heard was true.
