Keith Berish was in the midst of making his UFC debut this past Sunday against Jiu-Jitsu ace Robert Drysdale when Berish blew out his knee while Drysdale had his back. Berish explained what happened on the UnderGround saying:
So I fought Drysdale yesterday afternoon, and the fight was going not too bad. Felt comfortable in there even with him on my back and all.
Stood up from the ground with him still on my back to wear his legs out, but unfortunately he started twisting the grip he had on my chin and as our weight shifted my knee blew out.
Dr. told me yesterday mostly torn ACL and MCL but believe your ass I will be back better then ever and at 185!!! This was still a great experience for me and now it’s just moving forward.
Thanks to everyone who supports me and the other fighters as well cuz like they say anything can happen and usually will happen and this was just one of those things.
We’d like to wish Keith Berish a speedy recovery, and hope to see him back in action again soon.Tags: featured, Keith Berish, mma, robert drysdale, TUF 19 finale, ufc
