Pele On The Road To Recovery

After suffering one of the most shocking injuries in combat sports at TKO 32, Jose "Pele" Landi-Jons is on his way to a full recovery.

The Brazilian kicked Brian Gassaway in their Feb. 28 bout and broke clean through his own right tibia and fibula. Surgery last Saturday morning at Montreal General Hospital was deemed a success, according to Landi-Jons' manager and trainer Bill Mahood.

"They placed, actually, a titanium pin down the middle of his tibia, and the surgery was very successful," Mahood said. "The orthopedic surgeon feels that the leg will heal probably stronger than it was before. Pele is quite encouraged to the fact that now he has a titanium plate in the middle of his leg and he'll probably be able to kick harder."

Landi-Jons will be back to full training in a shorter time than most expected -- truly remarkable considering the grim nature of his injury.

"Recovery wise, we're looking at probably two weeks to walk on the leg and probably two and a half months before he's back to light training and then three, three and a half months before he's back to full training," Mahood said.

Difficult as it may be to see a teammate and training partner fall, it certainly hasn't had ill effect on those at the Revolution Fight team.

"Pele's already been hobbling around the gym, you know, in good spirits and encouraging everyone else to train hard and get on to good fights," Mahood said. "I think in that respect, everyone is just simply back to business. Unfortunately you hate to see something like that happen to one of your teammates, but it did and we're all back to business."
