Glover Teixeira Says He Doesn't Need Surgery On His Shoulder
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.15.2014
While Glover Teixeira (22-3 MMA, 5-1 UFC) injured his shoulder in his decision loss to Jon Jones (20-1 MMA, 14-1 UFC) at UFC 172 (for the UFC light heavyweight title), the injury does not require surgery. The shoulder was injured when Jones cranked it early in the first round on April 26. The challenger suffered a torn labrum and ended up losing after five rounds with 50-45 scores from all the judges. Before his loss, he had a twenty-fight winning streak, with five in a row for the UFC. A return date for the fighter has not been announced.
Great news today from Doc...no surgery needed on my shoulder right now. Thank u everyone for the support!!
