Anthony Pettis To Undergo Surgery, Return Likely Mid to Late Summer to the UFC

Now that Anthony Pettis knows that his lightweight title shot will have to wait, he’s decided to clean up some nagging injuries instead.

Pettis will undergo minor surgery according to his manager Mike Roberts from MMA Inc., who confirmed an earlier report from UFC Tonight on Fuel TV when speaking to on Tuesday.

While the former WEC lightweight champion opted not to reveal the nature of the injury, the surgery required is to clean out some existing problems, which most likely means a joint problem like a knee or elbow.

Roberts stated that with no scheduled fight on the horizon, now just made the most sense for Pettis to get the surgery done.

Regardless of the injury, Pettis’ time under the knife will keep him on the sidelines for approximately 8 weeks in total.

According to Roberts, Pettis will likely get back in the UFC Octagon sometime in mid to late summer 2012 and once again begin his pursuit of the UFC lightweight title.

Pettis most recently competed at UFC 144 where he knocked out Joe Lauzon with a thunderous head kick, earning ‘Knockout of the Night’ honors as well.

I like a guy who keeps his injuries to himself... unlike Mr. Jackson... Instead of making excuses about them, just get them taken care of and move on.
