At UFC on FOX 7, Raphael Assuncao secured the win despite breaking his arm against Mike Easton. In his return, Assuncao meets Vaughan Lee.
The timeframe of the break was perfect for Assuncao, as he was allowed to let the bones settle and get in a full training camp.
“Even through my fracture, I didn’t stop training,” said Assuncao on MMA Junkie. “I accepted this fight and started my camp right after I finished healing, so the timing was perfect.”
Assuncao hopes to win the fight via armbar.
They closeout the prelims of UFC on FUEL TV 10. It’s from Brazil’s Ginásio Paulo Sarasate this Saturday, June 8.
