To kickstart the break, Paige enjoyed a morning spa session at their hotel before getting dressed up for a day out with fellow MMA ace Austin.

The American, 24, has been out of action since breaking her arm in January's defeat to Jessica-Rose Clark.

But she has remained involved in the sport by helping Austin to prepare for two fights.

And Paige admits watching her other half in action "makes me really jealous".

She told MMAjunkie: "I have a lot of built-up energy and aggression right now, so he gets to take all of that. It’s really fun."

Complications from surgery in January meant Paige needed a second operation in July, which involved transferring bone fragments from her hip into her arm.

She said: "What made it even worse is I kind of anticipated like a typical surgery and a typical timeline for that.

"I thought I would be back training in eight weeks, and it’s been nine months.

"And two surgeries and then hip surgery that will help, like, fix the arm. So it’s been a very long process that I didn’t anticipate having to go through."

Flyweight fighter Paige, who has a 7-4 record, is back in light training and hopes to be clear to resume her normal schedule next month.
