Strawweight Alex Chambers ‘Blew Her Knee’ During VanZant Fight

 

UFC strawweight, Alex Chambers suffered a disappointing loss to the tough Paige VanZant this past Saturday at UFC 191.

VanZant was the huge favorite going into it and showed why during it. She kept the pace up and put a beating on the TUF 20 cast member.

It never really seemed like Chambers was injured during the fight, but afterwards, on her Instagram, she announced to her fans that she did indeed suffer a knee injury in the second round of her fight.

Check out what she said:

“Sorry to all my friends and fans out there. I’m not making any excuses; It was a tough, hard fight. Unfortunately, early in the 2nd round, I blew my knee and it changed my game plan and what I could do. I faught for the next 6 minutes like this. I’m taking nothing away from Paige and have a lot of respect for her.Thank you to everyone who has been with me on my journey, my sponsors, American Top Team, Northside Pure Boxing, LRP Performance, and the @ufc @danawhiteufc @seanshelby for the opportunity. I’m looking forward to healing up, begin training for my next fight, and continue doing what I love.”
