Paige VanZant appears to be in prime fighting following surgery on her arm.

The superstar UFC fighter recently posted a video of herself on Instagram kicking a water balloon being held by her husband. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

Two very quick observations here. First, she clearly hasn’t lost an ounce of her kicking ability since she last fought against Rachael Ostovich and walked away with a victory. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)

Secondly, and much more importantly, VanZant no longer has a brace on her arm following surgery to fix a busted up bone.

That means she must be relatively close to a return.

Let’s hope VanZant is back to fighting sooner than later. She had a ton of momentum headed in a positive direction after the Ostovich fight, but she just can’t seem to stay healthy.

Hopefully, after this latest surgery, she’s ready to make a glorious return to the octagon.
