Hannah Cifers kicked off the UFC 235 card, defeating Polyana Viana by unanimous decision, but that victory didn’t come without consequence.
That consequence comes in the form of a broken arm, which Cifers says was suffered in the first round of the bout against Viana.
Cifers would announce the news and the surgery needed to repair the break via Twitter:
Well, here’s another 1st! Time for surgery. --I broke my arm in the very first round of my fight. I guess it’s a good thing I went to the hospital after all. ----Thanks everyone for all of your support - @danawhite @ufc @Mickmaynard2 I’ll be back soon! pic.twitter.com/Wl00Rk4drw— Hannah Cifers (@HannahCifersMMA) March 8, 2019
There is no word at this time as to when Cifers is expected to return to action, but more should be known as the broken arm heals up.
The fighter currently holds a 1-1-0 record under the UFC banner (9-3-0 overall), having defeated the aforementioned Viana and suffering a loss to Maycee Barber.
