Champion Ronda Rousey (10-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC) wasted no time at UFC 175 defending belt, winning her a fourth straight title defense. Ronda was able to come out and knock out Alexis Davis in 16 seconds with a brutal finish. Immediately following the fight Rousey needed 9 stitches in her right hand to close a laceration on her right hand, due to a cyst under her knuckle.
In Addition to the cyst it also now being reported that Ronda has also suffered a broken hand that will keep her sidelined for awhile. Not to mention, she will is also expected to have Minor surgery on knee in her absence.
“I just kind of kept dismissing it, and I ended up ripping it open with that first overhand right, and I just ended up getting nine stitches in my hand. Hopefully the cyst is actually gone, but I have to go to the doctor to get it checked out and make sure,” added Rousey.
“With the knee surgery, it’s just something that’s more maintenance that I need to do. So it’s not really a major knee surgery at all. It’s just a scope. I literally walk out of there and (should) be 100-percent in two weeks after that one,” she explained.
“Right hand, right knee, but I’m left handed. So it’s all good.”
“This has kind of been a whole life thing. I tore my ACL when I was 16. When I was doing judo, I was getting knee surgery pretty much every two years. And then when I started doing MMA, it actually healed a lot, and it hadn’t really been giving me too much trouble,” said “Rowdy.”
“When I did the Miesha (Tate) and (Sara) McMann fights back to back, I had put so much wear on it from not resting in between. With McMann, I had to do so much wrestling that my knee started to really act up. I rested after that and it started feeling better. I knew I had to get surgery, but it wasn’t really imminent. My knee is really stable. All the ligaments are fine, there’s just stuff floating around in there,” said the women’s bantamweight titleholder.
