It’s really unfortunate VanZant once again has to deal with a health issue. She’s had problems with her arm for well over a year at this point.

She smoked Rachael Ostovich in early 2019, and it looked like she was ready to keep the momentum rolling. Unfortunately, she’s got to wait to heal up before getting back in the octagon.

There had been some talk she could fight soon, but I highly doubt that’s going to happen.

Whenever she does come back to the UFC and steps in the octagon for Dana White, I can promise you plenty of people will be paying attention.

She’s one of the biggest stars in the game, and the sport is much better off when she’s dominating. That’s just a fact.

Let’s hope 12 Gauge is back sooner than later.
