It’ll be her first fight in well over a year, and she looks ready to crack some skulls. She’s been dropping looks at her training on Instagram.

So, do we think she’s fully recovered from her arm injury? It certainly would appear to look that way. VanZant hasn’t fought in so long, and it always seems like injuries derail momentum.

Last time she stepped into an octagon, she smoked Rachael Ostovich.

Now, she’ll take on Ribas for what should be an epic fight at UFC 251. I can’t wait to watch her fight. It’s been way too damn long.

Go, Paige, go!
