The fact we know her arm is getting better and the fact she keeps hyping up a return should make fans everywhere super excited. The sport of MMA is much more entertaining when the women’s side is thriving. There’s no doubt about it. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Greatest Ronda Rousey Photos On The Internet)

There might be some more talented women right at the top, but there’s no question VanZant’s marketability is needed to make the UFC better as an entire product. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)

When she’s at the top of her game, the flyweight star is one of the best people in all of sports.

I have absolutely no idea what the future holds for VanZant. Not a clue at all. I know I’ve been following her career for years, and I’ve watched her claw her way back from injury time and time again. There’s no doubt she has the spirit of a warrior.

The question is how quickly can she get back in the octagon. I’m hoping it’s sooner than later, and I think that’s going to be the case. My guess is it could be as quickly as a month or two. Whatever the return date is, I think it’ll be soon.

She’s an expert at dropping hints that pay off, and we’ve seen her do it before prior to a return. Nobody wanted to listen when I guaranteed she’d fight again so long ago. Yet, I was correct.
