carla_esparza_mma_ufc_fighterUFC strawweight fighter Carla Esparza lost not only the division’s title but now 6-8 months of her career, after having been utterly dominated by reigning champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk in her last Octagon outing.

Brian Butler of Suckerpunch Entertainment manages Esparza and confirmed with FOX Sports that a shoulder injury suffered during her lopsided loss to Jedrzejczyk wasn’t healing on its own and will require surgery followed by several months of rehab.
