The American Kickboxing Academy product revealed that he suffered a broken orbital in the middleweight bout in a recent post on his Instagram account.

“I don’t know what to say except that I got my ass beat tonight,” Winn wrote. “Got rocked early and I couldn’t fully get my legs back. I have a broken orbital bone in my face that I believe came in the first round. Will need surgery.

“I tried so hard in every aspect of preparing for this fight. I had to overcome some serious issues in my life to even be able to come back and step into the cage tonight or ever again for that matter. I’m sad of course. But I will hold my head high on the person I know I am becoming. My support system is out of this planet. The people who have stuck with me through the rough patches, thank you. I’ll be back.”

Winn succumbed to a series of elbows from Hawes at the 4:25 mark of Round 2 to lose for the third time in his last four appearances. The 33-year-old struggled to navigate the superior reach of his opponent and was never competitive, as Hawes rocked him on multiple occasions. A timetable for Winn’s return is currently unclear.
