Torn Hand Ligament Forces Anthony Hernandez to Withdraw from UFC 302

April 30, 2024
Anthony Hernandez has pulled out of a proposed middleweight bout against Roman Dolidze at UFC 302.

“Fluffy” announced via Instagram on Monday that a torn ligament in his hand will force him to withdraw from the June 1 event. It is currently unknown if Dolidze will remain on the card against a replacement opponent. UFC 302 takes place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on June 1 and is headlined by a lightweight championship clash between Islam Makhachev and Dustin Poirier.

“On Friday while training I sustained an injury. I got my MRI results back this morning and unfortunately due to a torn ligament in my hand, I will no longer be able to fight on June 1,” Hernandez wrote. “I want to apologize to the [the UFC], my opponent, [and] the best matchmaker [Mick Maynard], but this was not an injury I could push through. I hope for a quick return and be back in the cage before summer ends. Thank you to all my fans, friends [and] family for the continued support …The journey continues.”

Hernandez has been victorious in his last five Octagon appearances. Most recently, the Dana White's Contender Series alum submitted Roman Kopylov in the second round of their encounter at UFC 298 on Feb. 17. Hernandez has finished all but one of his opponents inside the distance during his current winning streak.
