Paige VanZant wants nothing more than to fight again as soon as possible.
After being sidelined nearly 18 months due to injury, VanZant returned to action at UFC 251, but barely got the chance to break a sweat when she suffered a first-round armbar loss to Amanda Ribas.
Afterward, the 26-year-old VanZant offered no excuses for her defeat and paid respect to Ribas on a job well done. That said, she’s anxious to wash the bad taste of that loss from her mouth, which is why she will likely push back a previously planned surgery on her arm in order to sign a new contract and get back in action sooner rather than later....
Paige VanZant is healthy and ready to fight, which is why she hopes to reach an agreement on a new contract during her free agency.
