Former bantamweight champion Holly Holm was seen with a cast this weekend for the first time since undergoing surgery early last week.

The photo, from an unknown source can be seen here.

The image shows Holm talking cage side with an unidentified man while cradling her bandaged hand and wrist.

Early last week her manager, Lenny Fresquez, told ESPN that she was having surgery to repair a shattered thumb following her loss to Valentina Shevchenko.

"She had eight pins inserted into her hand," he said. "We'd still like to fight by the end of the year. As far as an opponent, we'll have to see who comes up. Whoever she fights, Holly needs to take care of business."

She also posted an Instagram early Monday morning where her hand is half hidden under a desk, but a bandage is clearly visible.

She is expected to be out of training at least the next six weeks according to her manager.

Holm shocked the world when she knocked out the then undefeated champion Ronda Rousey, Holm would later go on to lose her title to Miesha Tate.

Holm lost via decision to Shevchenko bringing her record to 10-2.
