Paige VanZant was expected to make her flyweight division debut against Jessica Eye at UFC 216, but then a back injury and other ailments forced her out of action.
Things may be back in order for the female fighting sensation because she is back in the gym and training.
VanZant posted the following on her Instagram:
There has been no time in the Octagon for VanZant in 2017 and fans last saw her in action in a losing effort to Michelle Waterson at UFC On Fox 22.
Eye, who was slated to fight Van Zant at UFC 216, has stated in recent interviews that the bout with PVZ may be rebooked by the end of the year. Which if true, it would mean that there are a total of nine UFC events until the end of the year for that fight to take place at.
