This unfortunate news means that we probably won’t see her go toe-to-toe against Chinese MMA fighter Yan Xiaonan anytime soon. They were scheduled to meet in the March event.
Below you can see her Instagram post where she lets her fans know about the situation.
Hello. Uh, crutches. That’s never a good thing, and it’s not,” Herrig said to her followers. “Unfortunately (on) Friday I tore my ACL, and I do need surgery, which means that I will not be fighting on (UFC 238), which is a bummer for sure. I just want to say I’m sorry to the fans, to the UFC and most definitely my opponent. I hope that she gets a replacement. There’s still enough time. As for me, what can you do? All I can do is move forward and work on my recovery … and come back stronger than ever.
Everyone from MMAIndia.com wishes her a speedy recovery, and hopefully, we will see her in the octagon soon enough!
