Tyron Woodley Injured, Doesn’t Plan UFC Return Anytime Soon
UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley doesn’t plan on competing inside the Octagon anytime soon.
During a recent interview, Woodley revealed that he is injured and does not know for sure when he will fight next in the UFC.
“Long story short, it’s going to be a minute before I’m out in the octagon, which almost works to the division’s credit because the deck needs to be shuffled a little bit more,” Woodley told Sirius XM’s MMA Tonight.
“There’s no real and true clear-cut No. 1 contender right now, and once these fights take place and these guys get out there, compete, do a training camp and fight, the world champion will just be getting back in the mix. So it’ll be perfect timing.”
Woodley went on to talk about his torn labrum on his shoulder and said he doesn’t plan to get surgery.
“I didn’t completely tear it, but I tore it enough where I should consider surgery,” Woodley said. “I’m actually investigating stem-cell injections – things of that nature first – and rehab because obviously if I can avoid going under the knife, I obviously want to try to do that. So that’s my option right now.”
