Paige VanZant suffered a gruesome foot injury late Wednesday night.

The UFC superstar posted an Instagram photo of her foot with a deep and bloody gash down the middle. I wouldn’t recommend looking at the photo if you’ve recently eaten or are hoping to still have an appetite come lunch time.

Well damn.

The injury comes at a particularly bad time for the strawweight fighter, given the fact she reportedly has agreed to fight Jessica Eye at UFC 216 October 7. It would be the first fight for VanZant in nearly a year.

It is still unsure whether or not VanZant will be sidelined, meaning she would miss her UFC return.

I’ve been saying for months VanZant’s resurgence to the UFC was inevitable, and it looks like the moment I was going to be proven right, she had to go off and get a disgusting injury. Hopefully she can bounce back quickly, because UFC fans everywhere are desperate for her return to the octagon.
