Wai'anae native Yancy Medeiros' MMA return was cut short this afternoon in Newark, New Jersey for UFC 159. The 25-year-old suffered a broken thumb with 2:28 left to go in the first round of his lightweight division fight with Rustam Khabilov, his UFC debut.
Medeiros, visibly distraught after doctors stopped the fight, takes his first career mark in the loss column (9-1, 0-1 UFC). The Wai'anae graduate had taken three years off of fighting due to injury, and had dropped a reported 80 pounds in the process.
