As seen at Saturday’s UFC 227 event, former UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson lost the strap to Henry Cejudo via split decision. Not only did he lose the title but he may suffered injuries as well.
While appearing at the UFC 227 post-fight press conference, Johnson said that he may have tore an LCL and his right foot may be broken.
“I think I probably tore my right LCL and then my right foot might be broken. Losing happens. Every great champion loses. I’ve lost before when I fought Dom (Cruz), I lose in the gym, so I’m fine. I’m more upset about the injuries, but other than that, I’m okay.”
As of this writing, there is no indication yet on how long Johnson could be out of action for but we will keep you updated.
