UFC lightweight champion Antony Pettis underwent surgery on Thursday to repair a torn posterior cruciate ligament. Doctors expect him to be out of action for six to eight months.
“The doctor said six to eight months, so I’m hoping six months,” Pettis told UFC Tonight recently about his expected recovery time. “I want to be back by summertime. Hope to get a July fight.”
Pettis posted the above “hospital selfie” following the surgery, saying, “Surgery went amazing!!! Thanks for all the prayers and positive vibes!!! #roadtorecovery”
See you back in the Octagon soon “Showtime!”
