BaderHandUFC light heavyweight Ryan Bader defeated Anthony Perosh by unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 33 on Dec. 7 in Brisbane, Australia. In the process of the one-sided victory, the 30-year-old fighter suffered a broken right hand.

On Tuesday, Bader (16-4) revealed via Facebook that he’s scheduled to undergo surgery on Friday to correct the break.  He also posted an x-ray photo of the break.

The typical recovery time for a broken bone is six weeks.

    I guess that’s what happens when you punch a guy in the head a bazillion times. GL on a fast recovery!

    The fact that he did this in the first round and still punched his opponent that many times shows how tough Bader is!!
