Paige VanZant continues to recover from the broken arm she incurred at UFC Fight Night 124, and the flyweight’s provided a timeline for her return.

VanZant broke her arm in a January 14th bout with Jessica-Rose Clark, and went on to lose the fight via decision. Recently the star appeared on TMZ Sports, and “12 Gauge” had this to say about her return to the cage (quote via MMA Mania):

“Three months until I’m back punching with my right hand,” VanZant said. “I know I’ll have a fight in six months, and that’s guaranteed. I’m staying in good shape, and I’m going to be knocking people out. I feel like I’m still in that title contention spot in the 125 division. I know everybody calls me out, so we’ll just pick somebody from the list and take ’em out.”

The 23 year-old VanZant has lost back-to-back fights, as prior to facing Clark, she was submitted by Michelle Waterson in 2016.
