UFC Fight Night 33 results: Nick Ring suffered knee injury in second round

Anne-Marie Sorvin-US PRESSWIRE

Nick Ring details the knee injury he suffered in the second round of his UFC Fight Night 33 bout with Caio Magalhaes.

UFC middleweight Nick Ring suffered his second straight defeat when he dropped a unanimous decision to Caio Maghalhaes on the preliminary card of UFC Fight Night 33 over the weekend. It appears that Ring suffered a bad injury that ruined his chances of winning the fight though. Ring detailed the injury on his Facebook page:

Unfortunate result for me in today's performance... I felt good in the fight until the 2nd round when I tore my ACL and my meniscus...

From that point on I had to fight to keep it on the ground rather than risk being on my feet...

It was a s**tty decision for me to have to make but I knew i was f**ked at that point and I wanted to finish the fight rather than have my leg give out again and take a TKO...

Sorry to my fans and to my loved ones for letting you down, it was a s**tty way to have to go out but I'm glad I fought to the end of the match...

Ring has dealt with knee injuries throughout his career, including a point pre-UFC where he was out of action for over two years. He has had a total of three ACL reconstruction surgeries already. It looks like he's going to be out of action again for a while, which is unfortunate.
