Irene Aldana and Lucie Pudilova battled on the UFC Fight Pass portion of the UFC 228 preliminary card, with Aldana picking up a decision win.
While Aldana was happy to pick up a win over a fellow ranked fighter, it didn ‘t happen without some complications taking place.
The big concern after the fight was that Aldana broke her hand, which the fighter revealed on Twitter:
Lamentablemente me rompí la mano en el primer round. Pero estoy feliz de haber sacado la victoria, gracias a todos por su apoyo ! ------ pic.twitter.com/A6gRLlWNtM— Irene Aldana (@IreneAldana_) September 9, 2018
Here is a translation of what Aldana wrote of Twitter, provided by Google Translate:
“Unfortunately I broke my hand in the first round. But I am happy to have taken the victory, thank you all for your support!”
There is no word at this time as to how long Aldana is going to be out of action for, but more should be known as the healing progresses. It is also unknown as to when Aldana broke her hand in the first round, as the majority of the round and bout with Pudilova was contested on the feet.
Aldana has now won her second straight bout under the UFC banner, having defeated the aforementioned Pudilova and Talita Bernardo.
