Irene Aldana and Lucie Pudilova had a scrap to remember at UFC 228, winning “Fight of the Night” honors for their three-round clash in Dallas on Saturday night.

The back-and-forth affair featured plenty of action, but ultimately it was Aldana who emerged with a split-decision triumph. According to FightMetric.com figures, Aldana landed 119 of 226 significant strikes in the bout, while Pudilova went 105 for 329 in that category.

Both strawweights recently posted photo updates of their health following the encounter. Aldana said she might have suffered a broken hand in victory.

“I cannot write much but I want to thank everyone for their messages!” Aldana wrote. “My eye is fine, it only has a scratch from a [poke] in the last round. My hand, if it broke from the first round, I hope to be back soon.”

While Pudilova was marked up, she claims to have emerged from UFC 228 injury free.

“Hi! What a fight. I’m totally fine, no bones broken,” Pudilova wrote. “Big thanks to all my fans for the incredible support and all the nice messages which I got from you guys! [That makes] me even more stronger! Especially huge thanks to [Dana White] that he gave me a chance to fight at UFC 228. And the biggest thanks to my coach Láďa E. . I will be back soon and even stronger!”

Mexico’s Aldana has won two straight in the Octagon after beginning her promotional tenure with back-to-back defeats. Pudilova, who hails from the Czech Republic, saw a two-bout UFC winning streak come to an end.
