Unfortunately for Pitbull, a loss wasn’t the only thing the fighter suffered at the event, as the fighter also suffered a broken hand, a shoulder injury and an undisclosed leg injury.
Matheus Aquino, who is Pitbull’s manager, posted the following on Twitter about his fighter’s health:
Patricky injured his right hand in the first fight, likely broken. And injured his left shoulder after he fell from the ring on the second fight.— Matheus Aquino (@MatheusDCAquino) December 31, 2019
Also, a muscle from his right leg separated from the bone in the second fight. I'm still waiting to hear details on how that happened and if he'll have to do some procedure in Japan. Talk about toughness. I'll update here once I hear more. https://t.co/ILGMdPMpQT— Matheus Aquino (@MatheusDCAquino) December 31, 2019
Patricky felt a pop in his right leg during the second round while he was moving around, which he believes is when the muscle dislocated from the bone. He still doesn't know what kind of procedure (if any) will be done at the hospital. He has a cast on his right hand. https://t.co/GfcuavtqQS— Matheus Aquino (@MatheusDCAquino) December 31, 2019
Aquino also spoke with MMA Fighting, stating that Pitbull will deal with some the medical issues when he returns to Brazil within the next few days, as some are being dealt with while the fighter is in Japan.
