UFC Fight Night 26: Diego Brandao Breaks Hand In Round One

Diego Brandao wanted to finish Daniel Pineda at UFC Fight Night 26 though an injury early into the bout changed everything.

“I tried to finish from the beginning, but I think I broke my hand in the first round so I decided to take him down,” said Brandao to MMA Fighting. “Right now, I feel pain. 100 percent I broke it and I can’t wait to see a doctor.”

The two opened the prelims on FS1 in a fight where both appeared tired after one round.

Brandao is now 4-1 since winning The Ultimate Fighter. It’s his second win this year, taking a submission to Pablo Garza in April.

Pineda has fought frequently since 2012. He’s gone 3-3 in that short time.

The featherweights were on UFC Fight Night 26 on August 17. It was in Boston, MA’s TD Garden. For complete results, click here.
