UFC strawweight contender Claudia Gadelha is fresh off of one of the biggest wins of her professional career, but she could be on the sidelines for the foreseeable future. This week, Gadelha, who defeated Carla Esparza on the preliminary card of UFC 225 in Chicago earlier this month, is set to undergo knee surgery.
Gadelha announced her pending surgery on social media.


According to Gadelha, she suffered her knee injury leading up to the fight with Esparza and was receiving treatment at the UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas.
“I badly injured my knee, everyone at the UFC (Performance) Institute knows that because I was treated by the institute’s physiotherapist,” Gadelha said, via MMA Fighting. “(The physiotherapist) was the only reason I didn’t pull out of the fight. She said ‘I’ll take care of you.’
”I kept visiting the physiotherapist during fight week to be able to fight. I felt the knee in the first round, could barely stand, and still beat Carla in her game, wrestling, so I think she’s just mad she couldn’t outwrestle me.”
There is no word on when Gadelha could return to action.
