Raphael Assuncao forced to undergo ankle surgery after all
Raphael Assuncao's injury woes continues. The bantamweight contender will undergo surgery on his right ankle this Thursday in Atlanta, his manager Danny Rubenstein informed MMAFighting.com. Assuncao injured the same ankle back in December but was told he did not need surgery. However, he was recently forced to go back in a boot after he was informed he rushed back to training too soon and the ankle didn't properly heal. After several weeks in a boot, he was then informed by doctors that he would require surgery after all.
