Eryk Anders Undergoes Hand Surgery
Anders had to go under the knife following the bout as he suffered a broken hand. He posted the following update on his Instagram account:
“Surgery went great. The road to recovery starts today thanks to the man, the myth, and legend [Dr. Lyle Cain]. Who and when would you guys like to see me fight next?”
Anders has dropped two straight bouts. He’s gone 1-3 in his last four outings after starting his professional mixed martial arts career with a record of 10-0. Anders was unranked going into his bout with Theodorou and it’s unlikely that he’ll appear after two defeats in a row.
