The former UFC women’s featherweight champion posted an update on
the procedure via
Instagram on Tuesday.
“Just had my surgery. Everything went well no complications!! Thank
you so much for the great care,” she wrote. “Time to let my body
heal and come back stronger, faster and more motivated than ever
before. Thank you to my family, my love, friends, team and all who
supported me. I'm forever thankful for all you have done.”
De Randamie was scheduled to face Marion
Reneau at UFC Fight Night 115 this past Saturday in Rotterdam,
Netherlands, but “The Iron Lady” was forced to withdraw from the
bout due to the lingering nature of her hand injury.
The 33-year-old Netherlands native last competed at UFC 208, where
she claimed the promotion’s inaugural featherweight strap with a
decision victory over Holly Holm.
De Randamie mentioned that her current hand injury could keep her
sidelined after the bout, but was stripped of the title after she
refused to face No. 1 contender in waiting Cristiane
De Randamie did not provide a timetable for her return, which will
likely be as a bantamweight.
