An American UFC fighter named Jared Cannonier said he fought three rounds with a broken arm on Saturday after his opponent injured him on his first kick.
Cannonier fought Robert Whittaker in the co-main event at UFC 254 on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi and lost a decision.
According to his later comments, he did so with a broken arm.
“It didn’t go exactly the way I wanted it to, but my mood remains high and I’m happy with how I fought everything,” said the 36-year-old on Instagram.
“The very first kick he threw broke or broke my left ulna, I couldn’t find my groove and quickly adjusted to get the W [win] So I take my L. [loss] with pride.”
Cannonier had won three fights in the Fight Island final, defeating David Branch, Anderson Silva and Jack Hermansson by technical knockout.
The Whittaker loss breaks that streak and leads the Australian to a likely second title shot at UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya as Whittaker now scores two big wins in a row.
“Whittaker met my expectations before and after the fight. Congratulations, buddy. ”
Cannonier shared a photo on his social media account showing bandages wrapped around part of his left arm.
