The surgery was a success, but Johnson has yet to give a time frame as to when he is going to return to action. Mighty Mouse also took to Twitter to provide a brief update on his recovery:

While his next bout isn’t confirmed at this time, a long rumored fight between Johnson and UFC Bantamweight Champion TJ Dillashaw seems like it could finally come to fruition. Johnson currently holds the record for the most successful title defenses in the UFC, which currently sits at eleven and will continue growing with each future successful title defense. Mighty Mouse is the first and only UFC Flyweight Champion , winning the gold back at UFC 152 in September of 2012.
