Former Strikeforce champion Josh Thomson underwent hand surgery recently after his decision loss to Benson Henderson.

While the loss was enough to concern Thomson, he also had to have pins put in his right thumb.

“Getting stitches out and a permanent cast over the pins in my thumb for the next 2wks until pins are ready to be taken out,” Thomson posted on Instagram, along with a picture of the damage that was done.

Thomson briefly mentioned retirement after the loss, but nothing else has been brought up concerning the “R” word since.
