Justine Kish has been forced out of her UFC Fight Night 92 main card bout with Maryna Maroz due to a spiral fracture in her finger.
Kish revealed the injury and her removal from the fight on Friday via social media.
“What I thought was just a finger sprain during practice Wednesday night ends up being a complete spiral fracture,” she wrote on sqor.com. “My hand simply got tangled in my training partner’s Gi and some how my finger cracked in the scramble… It physically hurts… but not as much as it hurts to tell you all that I will no longer be fighting on UFC Fight Night 92.”
Kish didn’t yet have a rehabilitation plan or a timetable for her expected return.
“These next fews days, I’ll be meeting with specialists in California to find the best fix for this injury. At the very least, I’m optimistic that a cast will do the trick; however, I’m currently facing surgical options, as well.”
