Paige VanZant Broke Her Arm, Kept Fighting

Paige VanZant Broke Her Arm, Kept Fighting

The women's flyweight bout was the co-main event of today's UFC Fight Night 124 card at Scottrade Center in St. Louis. PVZ was able to land some good strikes early, but Clark was able to take her down to the ground multiple times, showing a vast difference in strength. At the conclusion of the fight, VanZant grabbed her right arm as she visibly winced in pain after gutting through a three round battle that she ended up losing by unanimous decision.

Clark, an Australian who now fights out of Las Vegas, improved to 9-5. VanZant, who was making her debut in the new UFC women's flyweight division, threw left jabs and plenty of kicks, but the most she seemed to be able to muster from her right hand were feints.

For Clark, confidence isn't a problem and the Aussie believes she has VanZant covered: "I think I have an advantage everywhere".

On a fight with VanZant: "We'll see what happens".

In addition to working with her new head coach Fabiano Scherner, VanZant accepted an invitation to train at Burke Camp, an exclusive Muay Thai training center in suburban Portland, where she's spent the past year getting the kind of one-on-one training she craves three or four times a week.

She checked in from the hospital after the fight.

"Well... I broke my arm in the first", VanZant wrote.

VanZant's rise from such a young age is a world away from anything Clark knew growing up. I knew coming in that I was the better fighter and I worked hard to show that.

"I want whoever's next", she said.

"I do like that she's an exciting fighter, and she tries fun stuff". "I feel so excited to open up this division and to get to be a part of it". For now, though, we hope she gets the rest she needs!
