anyone know? i love watching him fight and he was on like a 4 or 5 fight win streak against dos anjos who he dominated and almost submitted in the first round before slipping up in the second.

LOL, it's funny because I thought about this last night and got to looking. It appears that he was supposed to fight JLau at 118 but busted a rib and had to pull out. Since then, my guess would be injury.

Hes been out since 118? Damn that must be close to a year now. How the fuck do you bust a rib so bad?

The guy is still young and has potential, hopefully he can make a comeback.

If hes not rumoured to be on a card soon id be worried though. Itd be waay over a year if he doesnt get a fight by 140.

112 in Abu Dhabi? Thats was like in early 2010. So hes already been out for 16 months??? For a busted up rib?

Makes no sense to me. Ive had many injurys, broken/cracked and bruised ribs are among a few. I've never been out for more then 2-3 months when it comes to rib injuries. WTF did he do to it so bad?

Hes only what 25?-26? He shouldnt be out for 18+ months for a busted up rib, I wonder why it was so bad. Cant seem to find nothing about it.

Anyways I hope he gets back soon, the dude obviously has skills. Theres lots of good matchups for him at 155. Id like to see him throw down with Pellegrino or Dunham.
