Michael Chiesa Injures Shoulder, Out For Six Weeks


The Ultimate Fighter Season 15 winner Michael Chiesa will have to wait a while to fight again, as he has sustained a shoulder injury in training, as reported to MMAFIGHTING.COM.

The injury will put him out of commission for about six weeks, and he plans on using the layoff to travel from his Washington home to train at The Lab in Glenndale, Ariz. and Team Alpha Male in Sacramento, Calif.

“[It’s} such a bummer,” he told MMAfighting. “I really wanted to make a four-fight run this year.”

After finding victory against Colton Smith at UFC Fight Night 3, Chiesa was eager to get another fight. Chiesa is 10-1 in his professional mixed martial arts career, with his only loss coming via d’arce choke to Jorge Masvidal at UFC On Fox 8.
