An injury has forced Karol Rosa to withdraw from UFC Singapore.
The bantamweight on Tuesday announced a knee injury that will take her out of a scheduled fight against Julia Avila at the Oct. 26 event, which takes place at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore.
”I have a ligament inflammation, feeling a lot of pain during training, (and) ended up causing a cyst and besides and I can’t make some movements,” she wrote on her official Instagram page. “I will need to stay still for (one) month without training and some physical therapy sessions.
”I apologize to all the people who were cheering and waiting for my second fight at UFC.”

Galera, infelizmente lesionei meu joelho durante o camp, estou com uma inflamação no ligamento, sentindo muito dor durante os treinos, acabou ocasionando um cisto e além disso não consigo fazer alguns movimentos. Vou precisar ficar parada durante 1 mês sem treinar e além disso algumas sessões de fisioterapia. Peço desculpas a todas as pessoas que estavam na torcida e que aguardavam minha segunda luta no UFC. Mas ja estou em tratamento e inclusive quero agredecer ao acompanhamento do Dr. Cristiano e a @drarenatacastro a clinica @careclub.ipanema por estarem me ajudando com o tratamento. Prometo que voltarei mais forte e estou ansiosa para voltar aos octógonos do UFC. . . Guys, unfortunately I injured my knee during the camp, I have a ligament inflammation, feeling a lot of pain during training, ended up causing a cyst and besides and I can't make some movements. I will need to stay still for 1 month without training and some physical therapy sessions. I apologize to all the people who were cheering and waiting for my second fight at UFC. But I'm already in treatment and I even want to thank Dr. Cristiano and @drarenatacastro the clinic @careclub.ipanema for helping me with the treatment. I promise I'll be back stronger and looking forward to returning to the UFC octagons. . .
With a little less than two weeks until the event, it’s unknown whether the promotion will be able to secure a replacement opponent. Avila wasn’t immediately reachable for comment.
Rosa hoped to pick up her second octagon win after a split-call over Lara Fritzen Procopio in her August debut. She’s currently riding a three-fight winning streak, while Avila is three months removed from a decision over Pannie Kianzad in her first UFC outing.
