Mike Brown has been suffering through a rough patch lately.
He once sat atop the featherweight division, the WEC 145-pound champion. He lost the belt to Jose Aldo at WEC 44, which was the beginning of the rough times.
Brown has lost four out of his last six bouts, including his most recent, to Rani Yahya, at UFC Fight For The Troops 2 in Fort Hood, Texas.
Not only did Brown lose the Yahya bout, however, but he also suffered an injury that will require surgery on Wednesday.
“Thanks for the continued support. Wanted to let everyone know that I’m doing fine, but I tore a radial cruciate ligament in my left hand in the first round of the fight,” he posted on his official Facebook page on Tuesday night.
“Surgery tomorrow, a crazy month for sure.”
