Paige VanZant made it clear in a recent social media post that her spine injury should be healing just fine.
Generally speaking, I don’t think a doctor would recommend an athlete suffering from a serious injury to be jumping up and down on a bed.
The UFC superstar was held out of UFC 216 with a spine and disc injury, but she appears to be doing just fine these days. This slow-motion video is proof.
I can’t even begin to tell you how disappointed UFC fans were when VanZant’s anticipated return to the octagon was called off at the 11th hour. People were not happy at all.
It’s obviously not her fault that she can’t fight because of a spine injury, but it’s still upsetting for the fans. There are a handful of events on the horizon for the UFC. Hopefully she’s on the card for one before the end of 2017 because it’s not going to look great if “12 Gauge” goes a whole year without getting in the octagon.
Hopefully this video is a sign we’re still headed in the right direction.
