Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) flyweight Paige VanZant is no longer fighting Poliana Botelho at the UFC 236 pay-per-view (PPV) event next month in Atlanta, Georgia, after breaking her arm, yet again.

“12 Gauge” posted a photo of her most recent fracture and promised mixed martial arts (MMA) fans that she would reveal the details behind her latest mishap in a comical media chat scheduled for later this evening.

Until then, have a look:


“Well.... I fractured my arm again,” VanZant wrote on Twitter. “So there’s that. I’ll go live on Instagram tonight to share the full story.”

VanZant (8-4) originally broke her arm in January 2018 during a unanimous decision loss to Jessica-Rose Clark in St. Louis. Surgery failed to repair the damage, forcing “12 Gauge” to go under the knife for a second time, which required bone chips from her hip, as well as a metal plate.

A timeline for her return is unknown at this time, but another surgery seems likely.
