UFC strawweight and perpetually upbeat Alexa Grasso is on the mend following a recent knee surgery.

Grasso (10-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) fell out of the top 15 of the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA women’s strawweight rankings following a decision loss to Felice Herrig in February. She rebounded in August with a narrow split-decision win over Randa Markos in August, and the fight was a finalist for MMAjunkie’s “Fight of the Month.”

However, the 24-year-old Mexican fighter, who missed weight for the fight, revealed she had a knee injury going into the matchup, as she wrote on Instagram:

According to Grasso, an MRI revealed a “damaged” meniscus.

Here’s a full translation provided by MMAjunkie:

“Good morning. I hope that you had a great weekend. I have two pieces of news, one good and one bad. The bad one is that I have an injury in my knee. Before my last fight, I had pain. My camp passed, and so did my teammates in Mexico City. I came back, and I went to the therapist, but the pain persisted. They sent me to take an MRI, and it ended up being that the meniscus was damaged. It’s not so bad, but it was necessary to have surgery to avoid further damage. The good news is that at SportMed, Dr. Francisco Arroyo performed a very good surgery, and now I have to keep resting and have therapy.

“This is my face after the anesthesia. I am very well taken care of and ready to recuperate myself as soon as possible. Sending big hugs. Please send me good vibes.”

Grasso hadn’t been booked for an upcoming event, and her recovery time table isn’t known.
