After suffering the disappointing result of losing in his hometown, Ricardo Lamas’ KO loss to Calvin Kattar at UFC 238 has provided an even worse outcome in the aftermath.
Taking to his Instagram account to provide an update on his condition, Lamas has revealed that he suffered three fractures in his jaw after his first-round KO loss to Kattar.
Lamas’ accompanying statement read:
Update: I suffered 3 fractures in my jaw during the fight. Been in the hospital since & had surgery yesterday. Titanium plates were installed. I asked the doctor to install laser guns in my mouth that I could activate with my tongue and shoot through my teeth but he said that was impossible. ? I’d like to thank everyone who reached out with kind messages. I’d like to thank my family, my beautiful wife, who without I wouldn’t be able to live my dream, my parents & brothers who have supported m e from day one & all my extended family for their support as well as my sponsors. For my beloved city of Chicago, I’m sorry I let you down again, but I wanted to thank you all for the cheers you gave me during my introduction, it gave me chills and I will never forget it, Chicago truly has the best fans. For now, it’s quality time with my family & baby #3 coming early August which puts in perspective what’s really important in Life.
