Paige VanZant let the world know with a recent Instagram post that she’s not backing down, and will return to the fighting game.

VanZant posted a photo of herself in the octagon with the caption:

I have not lost my fire. I have not lost my drive. It burns brighter and stronger than ever before. I have been dealing with a broken arm and multiple surgeries for eight months now. I don’t post a lot about it and share it because it’s not a happy part of my life. It sucks. I go to the gym every day and have to sit on the side of the mat and watch. I leave every practice in tears because of anger and jealousy. The lord is teaching me patience now more then ever. I am going to fight again. I am going to win again. PVZ will return. Dont [sic] mistake my silence for weakness, no one plans a murder out loud.

The is the type of fire and passion that I love to see out of VanZant and fighters in general. I love to see them let everybody know they might be hurt, but they’re not backing down one bit. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

VanZant has had a hell of a go of it lately. She lost her last fight back in January, suffered a broken arm and has really struggled to heal. It’s not a great situation by any metric or measurement. She’s still showing up, however, and doing everything she can to win. That’s the spirit of a true warrior. (SLIDESHOW: These UFC Women Really Hate Wearing Clothes)

As I’ve said many times before, most people refused to listen to me when I said VanZant would come back before. They didn’t want to hear it. Many people thought her career was over. I was one of the few people out there actually believing that she’d be down to roll again. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Paige VanZant Photos On The Internet)

Well, I think we’re in the same situation right now. I guarantee she fights again. Go ahead and doubt my prediction. I promise that I’ll be correct. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)
