The Paige VanZant comeback train looks to be steaming full speed ahead, judging from a recent video of her practicing.

VanZant was doing some light sparring with her boyfriend and fellow UFC fighter Austin Vanderford. The former strawweight fighter displayed some impressive hand speed, and looked more than ready to fight today if she had to. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)

I think it’s safe to say that whatever injury kept her out of UFC 216 has fully healed because I don’t believe she’d be moving like that if it wasn’t. UFC fans are still eagerly waiting for VanZant to get back in the octagon for the first time since she got lit up by Michelle Waterson in December 2016. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

The good news is her next contract is apparently just sitting in her e-mail waiting to be signed. That means fans shouldn’t be waiting too much longer. I don’t know what fight card she’s going to end up on, but the pay-per-view numbers are going to be huge. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Greatest Ronda Rousey Photos On The Internet)
