I’ve seen some disgusting things during my time on this planet, and those photos from VanZant are right up there with some of the worst of it when it comes to sports injuries.

The flyweight star has struggled with a broken arm the past couple years. Let’s hope this finally is enough to permanently fix the situation.

Having said that, those pictures above are outrageously disgusting. They literally just sliced it open and pulled the skin back. I’m not sure how many people would be able to keep their lunch down if they saw it in person.

I thought there was a real chance VanZant would fight again this summer, but I’m not sure that option is really on the table anymore.

Let’s hope she makes it back sooner than later. There’s no doubt the UFC is much better off when she’s fighting. That’s just a fact.
