Christos Giagos opens up on the injury
‘The Spartan’ has been away from action since his submission loss to Thiago Moises in June. However, his encounter with the Frenchman is officially off after a horrendous accident. The 32-year-old took to his social media account and announced his fight with Saint-Denis at UFC Paris is off due to a serious injury that he sustained. What seems surprising that the injury did not take place during his training.
Christos Giagos told the story of his injury in an Instagram post. There, he revealed that he tore a tendon in his pinky, forcing him to withdraw. The cut was so severe, that Giagos had to go to a hand specialist to fully reattach the finger.
