Sean Strickland could be out for a few months after recently being injured in a motorcycle accident.
The UFC welterweight posted a pair of video updates on his Instagram account regarding the incident, in which he said he was hit by a car while leaving Kings MMA in California.
“I was riding back from Kings, and I got in an accident. It wasn’t my fault, but I’ve been blacked out for a good minute. I just came to after surgery,” Strickland said in his first video. “It’s going to be a long road back, but I love fighting, so I’ll get back on the ball and make it happen. Thanks for the support.”
After that initial prognosis, Strickland revealed that he underwent knee surgery following the accident and that he expects to be back within a “few months.”
“I was going straight and a car turned into me, and I got into an accident going 45 miles per hour. I was unconscious for about three hours. I got knee surgery last night,” he said. “The doctor said it’s not that bad. I should be back at it in a few months.”
Strickland, 27, last competed at UFC Fight Night 138 in October, when he defeated Nordine Taleb via second-round TKO. Strickland is 7-3 during his Octagon tenure and is 20-3 as a professional overall.
