Ladies and gentlemen, today is the day we’ve waited over a year for. Today is when Paige VanZant finally makes her fighting return.

VanZant will fight Jessica-Rose Clark at UFC Fight Night 124 in St. Louis Sunday night, and I couldn’t be more excited. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)

There were so many people who questioned whether or not she’d ever fight again after losing to Michelle Waterson at the end of 2016. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Greatest Ronda Rousey Photos On The Internet)

So many critics and doubters seemed to arrive out of nowhere to voice the opinion that VanZant’s fighting days were over. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

The comeback journey will officially be over after Sunday. I hope that VanZant absolutely dominates, and I hope that all her critics and doubters feel really stupid when it’s all said and done. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

Many said this day was a fantasy. Hopefully we’ll never hear from those idiots again when VanZant wins tonight. Let’s go!
