Correia’s manager Wallid Ismail told UFC Tonight that she suffered the injury last month in training and had to have surgery to fix it. According to Ariel Helwani, who spoke to Ismail, Correia is hoping to return to action in the March or April range.
Tate and Correia had been having a back and forth on social media before the injury took place. Correia said that she would be Tate in such convincing fashion that the UFC would be forced into giving her a title shot. Tate welcomed the challenge and accepted the fight, but was reslotted against former Olympic wrestler Sara McMann when it was learned Correia would be unable to go.
