UFC’s Raphael Assuncao Reporting Broken Ankle

A victorious Raphael Assuncao

By FCF Staff

On the same day that Dominick Cruz has announced he’s injured his ACL, fellow bantamweight contender Raphael Assuncao is reporting that he’s broken his ankle.

Assuncao (23-4) has worked his way into the title shot mix by winning seven straight fights, but on Monday, the 32 year-old tweeted:

The Brazilian fighter did not provide any information regarding a timeline for his return. During Assuncao’s recent run, he scored a split decision win over reigning UFC champ TJ Dillashaw in October, 2013.

Assuncao is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Bryan Caraway at a Fight Night card on October 4th.
