After months of deliberation, former UFC women’s featherweight champion Germaine de Randamie finally underwent hand surgery on Monday. From all indications, it was a success.
De Randamie (7-3 MMA, 4-1 UFC) was forced to withdraw from a scheduled UFC Fight Night 115 matchup with Marion Reneau, which took place this past weekend in her native Netherlands, due to the lingering problems with her right hand.
“The Iron Lady” said earlier this year that the issue has bothered her for the past several fights, but did her best to avoid surgery. She finally went under the knife, though, and the ex-champ provided an update for her fans on social media (via Instagram):
Just had my surgery. Everything went well no complications!! Thank you so much for the great care #DrFeitz #xpertclinic ???? time to let my body heal and come back stronger, faster and more motivated than ever before. Thank you to my family, my love, friends, team and all who supported me?????? I’m forever thankful for all you have done?? ” DIE WITH MEMORIES,NOT DREAMS”
De Randamie has not competed since UFC 208 in February where she earned a unanimous decision victory over Holly Holm to win the inaugural women’s 145-pound belt. The promotion attempted to set up a first title defense against Cris Cyborg at UFC 214 in July, however, de Randamie was unwilling to accept the fight. As a result, she was stripped of the gold.
A timeline for de Randamie’s return to the octagon following surgery was not revealed.
