Popular UFC women’s strawweight Paige Van Zant is a huge fan favorite and particularly enjoys a huge fan following among men across the globe. Thus, people have eagerly been waiting for her octagon return. She last fought and defeated Rachel Ostovich back in January of last year. She has now announced her return timeline.
PVZ took to Instagram to post a picture along with a long message/caption. She called herself a gangster fighter and promised her fans that she will return to competing in May. Here’s what she wrote on Instagram:
You know that Japanese proverb “Fall seven times, stand up eight.” Well my story is break your arm three times, keep fighting four. Anyone could choose to give up here, it would be the easiest thing to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that’s true strength. Yes I fractured my arm again. No this isn’t the end of my story. This is a very small fracture and will only take 6-8 weeks to heal. My Dr. said I will be back ready to take a fight in May. This is the second time I broke through a screw hole where my plate in my arm is, third break in a third spot. I know I need to adjust my training now that I have a permanent plate and screws in there. I will make those adjustments and I will return successfully just as I have before. I am not going anywhere, I am only 25 years old and I am a gangster fighter. I will be making my UFC return in May. God just wanted me to have a little more patience. Send me some good vibes #fanzants I could use some love
