Reigning flyweight champion Alexa Grasso suffered a serious hand injury in her exciting rematch with Valentina Shevchenko on September 16.

After five hard-fought and intense rounds, Grasso retained her title as the fight was ruled a split draw.

During the fight, the champion hurted her hand and now she’s having surgery on a hand fracture she suffered in the middle of the title bout.

“In the fight I fractured my hand; we are used to not letting the pain stop us in anything and although it hurt I didn’t think it was serious until I wanted to go back to training and I realized my hand was still very bad,” Grasso posted from the hospital bed on Tuesday.
