Cub Swanson picked up the win he sought at UFC Tampa last weekend, defeating Kron Gracie by unanimous decision, but it came at a cost.
The long-time featherweight contender sustained a broken hand and injured eye in the fight, and will not be able to compete again until it’s healed and he’s given the all-clear by a doctor.
Swanson updated on the situation on Twitter.
Update on me 🙂
Broken left hand & minor scratches in both eyes 🤷🏽♂️ I’m probably not fighting again until next year
