ronda-rousey-ufc-175

Ronda Rousey put on her most dominant performance yet – and that might be saying something – against Alexis Davis this past Saturday night.

Unfortunately for Rousey (10-0 MMA, 4-0 UFC), that performance came at a cost. In addition to bursting a cyst on her right hand that required nine post-fight stitches, and a planned minor knee surgery that she revealed after the fight with Davis (16-6 MMA, 3-1 UFC), Rousey can add broken hand to her list of ailments.

That news comes from UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta, who told Yahoo! Sports’ Kevin Iole of the injury on Tuesday night, the same night he went on “FOX Sports Live” to explain the promotion’s decision to cancel next month’s UFC 176 pay-per-view in Los Angeles.

Almost as soon as word was out a week ago that UFC 176 headliner Jose Aldo was out with a neck injury, rumors began to swirl that a quick win by Rousey against Davis in the UFC 175 co-main event could see her turn right around to headline UFC 176 a month later.

Rousey herself said she’d be willing to step up to save the card, and currently sidelined previous No. 1 contender Cat Zingano told MMAjunkie Radio that she’d be able to make the turnaround if the UFC asked her to do so.

Rousey even was put on the spot by UFC analyst Joe Rogan in the cage after her 16-second TKO win over Davis, in part thanks to producers asking him during his interview with Rousey to grill her on whether she’d take the main event at UFC 176 – which upset UFC President Dana White, who may have known already that Rousey wasn’t going to be an option, and that the event was almost certainly going to be canceled.

Now with the impending knee surgery, stitches in her hand, and that same hand broken after she punched Davis in the face once on the feet, slammed her to the canvas and punched her 10 more times in the head to get the quick finish, Rousey’s return time table is up in the air.

Rousey herself has not yet commented publicly about the broken hand.
