Joanna Jedrzejczyk Reportedly Suffers Broken Hand, Surgery Needed

When you set multiple striking records inside the octagon your hands are bound to be in some pain afterwards. UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk has reportedly suffered a broken hand that will require surgery. There is no timetable on when she will return to action.

Jedrzejczyk was victorious at UFC 193 this past Saturday via a unanimous decision over Valerie Letourneau. During the bout Jedrzejczyk set a UFC title bout record by landing 220 significant strikes. She also landed 70 leg kicks which is a new record.

This is the second time that the strawweight champion has broken her hand. She suffered a break during her last title defense against Jessica Penne back in June. Hopefully injuries do not become a habit for Jedrzejczyk but if she continues to set striking records it will be hard to imagine her hands and feet not taking punishment as well.
