Alexa Grasso Undergoes Knee Surgery

Female strawweight star Alexa Grasso has earned two wins thus far under the UFC banner, defeating the duo of Heather Clark and Randa Markos.

However, there is going to be a slight delay before the female fighter can return to action because she just underwent surgery to repair a meniscus injury.

The fighter posted an image of herself in the hospital, while discussing her surgery through an Instagram post:

Buenos días! -- Espero que tengan una excelente semana. Yo tengo 2 noticias 1 buena y 1 mala. •La mala es que tenía un lesión en mi rodilla. Antes de mi última pelea tenia una molestia, pasó mi camp y el de mis compañeros en CDMX, regresé y fui a terapias pero la molestia seguía. Asi que me mandaron a hacer una resonancia y resultó que uno de mis meniscos estaba dañado, no es algo tan grave pero era necesario hacer cirugía para evitar daños mayores. •La buena es que en SportMed el Dr. Francisco Arroyo me operó super bien y ahora solo debo estar en reposo y terapias. Esta es mi cara después de la anestesia -- estoy super bien cuidada y lista para recuperarme lo mas pronto posible. Les mando un abrazote -- mandenme mucha buena vibra -- #LoboMMA #TeamGrasso #SportMedMx #medicinadeldeporte #mantenimientodearticulaciones

Here is an English translation of what the fighter wrote:

“Good morning. I hope that you had a great weekend. I have two pieces of news, one good and one bad. The bad one is that I have an injury in my knee. Before my last fight, I had pain. My camp passed, and so did my teammates in Mexico City. I came back, and I went to the therapist, but the pain persisted. They sent me to take an MRI, and it ended up being that the meniscus was damaged. It’s not so bad, but it was necessary to have surgery to avoid further damage. The good news is that at SportMed, Dr. Francisco Arroyo performed a very good surgery, and now I have to keep resting and have therapy. This is my face after the anesthesia. I am very well taken care of and ready to recuperate myself as soon as possible. Sending big hugs. Please send me good vibes.”

There is currently no timeframe for how long the fighter is going to be out of action or when she may return to the Octagon.
