After having his three-fight winning streak ended by Robert Whittaker at UFC 254, Jared Cannonier is reporting he injured his arm shortly into their bout.

Cannonier faced the former middleweight champion in the co-headliner of the event, but was outstruck and lost the fight via unanimous decision. Since then the hard-hitting fighter posted the statement below.

That didn’t go exactly how I wanted but My spirits remain high and I’m happy with how I fought all things considered. The very first kick he threw broke or fractured my left ulna 🦴 I couldn’t find my grove and adjust quickly to get the W so I’ll take my L with pride. @robwhittakermma certainly lived up to my expectations before and after the fight. Congrats mate. Enjoy Xmas and the new 👶🏽. It was a hell of an experience to be here. Can’t wait to go again.

With the loss, the 36-year-old Cannonier’s record fell to 13-5. Whittaker’s record now stands at 22-5.
