UFC flyweight, Paige VanZant, undergoes successful second arm surgery to repair the damage on Thursday after the first surgery didn’t heal the arm correctly.
VanZant suffered right arm injury in her decision loss to Jessica-Rose Clark at UFC Fight Night 124 in January. She underwent surgery shortly after the contest, but months later it showed, the healing process didn’t work well.
According to ESPN, VanZant had four hours of the procedure, where surgeons took a bone fragment from her hip to placed on her arm.
