“Shawn Jordan and I were in the cage and he went for a hip throw and he landed on my shoulder, all 275 pounds of him. I think he slipped. He knows not to land on me. But it happened. And you know you could hear the crack right away. It’s one of those feelings were you know when you are hurt and when you are injured. It’s a grade-two separation of my right AC joint, which is what I am feeling right now. It’ll be six to eight weeks recovery, but no surgery, thankfully. Hopefully, I can heal this up real quick and get my full range of motion back. But, right now I can’t even pick my hand up. You know, probably the biggest issue I am going to face now is trying to return too early. I would like to get back in the gym and try to hit some pads in 4-5 weeks, but the doctors were very adamant that even at six weeks I am not going to be able to put the pressure on the shoulder to wrestle the way I should… I am trying to stay in shape using my other three limbs in the meantime.”
