I am no stranger to injuries, setbacks and adversity when it comes to MMA. I put everything I had into this fight camp and it freaking sucks to have to let y’all know I won’t be fighting in February. As fighters our bodies are never 100 percent I really tried everything I could to make it through camp and be as healthy as I could for this fight but after some MRIs were taken of my shoulder last week my team, my doctors and I have decided that it’s best for me to let this injury heal now than to risk permanent damage. I am so sorry to my opponent @lomalookboonmee I was so excited for this fight, I have so much respect for you as a martial artist and I hope we can reschedule or meet later on in our careers! I plan on staying in shape and keeping my weight low so that as soon as I am cleared I am ready for whatever the @ufc has to offer me. My sights are set on the spring time! I already have an awesome team working on getting me back to 100 percent within the next couple of months. I appreciate everyone’s continued support and I really can’t wait to get back in the octagon. God has other plans for me right now, so stay tuned! Love you guys ❤️
