Paige VanZant training again one day after nasty foot injury

Just one day after a gruesome foot injury sustained by UFC fighter Paige VanZant, the strawweight competitor is back in the gym.

Yesterday VanZant posted a photo of the injury which required stitches and wrote “Well damn.”

Well damn.

A few days ago it was speculated that VanZant would be moving up to face Jessica Eye in a bout at flyweight bout at UFC 116 in October.

Her coach posted a video today stating, “@paigevanzantufc with newly stitched up foot training! Nothing slows her down! @ufc_women”

While the Eye-VanZant fight has not yet officially been announced by the UFC we will keep you abreast of that situation as it unfolds. We will also keep you updated as to if the injury will set back the date of that anticipated matchup or change VanZant’s opponent all together.  Stay tuned.
