While Pingyuan did leave the Octagon with his second victory in the UFC, it didn’t come without the fighter paying the price physically.
That’s because Pingyuan suffered a hand injury at the event, although the exact nature of the damaged hand is unknown as of this writing.
Pingyuan shared the news of the injury via Instagram:
Here is a translation of what Pingyuan wrote, which has been provided by Google Translate:
“At the end of the game, my hand has been reset. There is always an accident on the stage. It will be better step by step. Thank you.”
There is no word at this time as to how long Pingyuan is expected to be out of action for, but more should be known as the injury heals up. Pingyuan currently holds a record of 2-0 under the UFC banner (13-5-0 overall), with those victories coming over the duo of Damian Stasiak and the aforementioned Martin Day.
