Diana Belbita can breathe a slight sigh of reduction after her newest battle.
The Romanian-Canadian strawweight was on the unsuitable finish of a nasty armbar submission Saturday at UFC Vegas 58 as she was compelled to faucet out with seconds remaining within the opening spherical of her preliminary battle with Molly McCann. Sadly for Belbita, she couldn’t faucet quick sufficient, as her arm could be seen popping as the bout came to a close.
Afterward, Belbita confirmed a report from Sportsnet that her arm was not damaged, although she left open the likelihood that she could have suffered a ligament tear.
No damaged bone. I’ve to do an MRI as quickly as I get again into Canada. It appears like a torn ligament

“No damaged bone,” Belbita wrote. “I’ve to do an MRI as quickly as I get again into Canada. It appears like a torn ligament.”
Ought to there be a tear in Belbita’s arm, it should doubtless maintain her on the shelf for a superb portion of 2024.
Belbita was preventing McCann for the second time after dropping a call to the Englishwoman in an October 2019 flyweight bout. With the loss, Belbita sees her UFC report drop to 2-5.
