Making Aljamain Sterling’s recent submission victory over Takeya Mizugaki even more impressive is the fact that the UFC fighter likely suffered a hernia during the bout.
Sterling has been keeping his fans in the know on his medical stops via social media over the past few days, and recently posted that a “final diagnosis” should be known soon.
Sterling, a member of Serra-Longo’s famed camp, moved into the UFC’s bantamweight rankings on the heels of his victory over Mizugaki.
Been at the hospital all day and things are starting to finally look up. Good news (slightly), but glass half-fu… https://t.co/TzzrFX2JAR
