Default Mark Munoz undergoes successful surgery, expects UFC return in May



From MMAMania.com:

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender Mark Munoz underwent successful surgery on Thursday (Jan. 19, 2012) to remove bone spurs and floating "chips" on and around his elbow.

That's the joint.

Here's the jam: The recovery period is four to six weeks, with a timetable of May 2012 for his Octagon return. The "Filipino Tweeting Machine" updated fans on his progress via the popular social media platform.

The injury forced Munoz to withdraw from his UFC on FOX 2 match-up against Chael Sonnen, paving the way for British bad boy Michael Bisping to step up and get his shot. "The Count" had to abandon Demian Maia to do it, but Chris Weidman was more than willing to step in and take his place.

That means division champion Anderson Silva will have an opponent named at the conclusion of the Jan. 28 network televised event from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. It also puts the winner of Maia vs. Weidman at the forefront of the 185-pound contenders.
Will Mark Munoz be waiting for him?

Wow, that's crazy. He must've been in a lot of pain a lot of the time over the last few years.

In the article I read, it's been bothering him for at least two years, but the fights & opportunities had been coming so fast, he didn't have time to get it taken care of. The injury in training this time was just the coup de grace. Even this time, he tried cortisone before surgery.

Munoz tweeted the details...He had the bone spurs but the injury in training was the spurs breaking loose and lodging in his joint which caused much more pain and locked the joint up
