Patricky Pitbull was last seen in action at Bellator MMA Europe 1, defeating Ryan Scope by way of split decision.
Fans haven’t seen Pitbull back in the cage since that event and there is a good reason for that, the fighter has undergone wrist surgery.
Pitbull took to Instagram to announce the news:
Got out of surgery a couple hours ago. I ruptured a tendon on my wrist in the first round of my last fight. Surgery was a success, but the damage was a bit more complicated than expected. It will delay my recovery a little bit, but doctors and I are optimistic I may be able to fight by August. See you guys soon! ----Saí da cirurgia há algumas horas. Rompi um tendão do punho no primeiro round da minha última luta. A cirurgia foi um sucesso, mas o dano foi um pouco mais complicado do que esperávamos. Vai atrasar minha recuperação um pouco, mas os médicos e eu estamos otimistas de que poderei lutar por volta de Agosto. Vejo vocês em breve! Obrigado Dr. Marcio D’Angelo pela atenção e todo cuidado.
Matheus Aquino, who is Pitbull’s manager, has informed MMA Junkie that his client is going to be able to train again in about six weeks time.
