UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks has revealed that he has a torn bicep and will undergo surgery to fix the injury next Monday.
The UFC welterweight champion is apparently going to be on the shelf for a while. Johny Hendricks stated after his title win at UFC 171 over Robbie Lawler that he had an elbow injury, but didn't know the extent of it. Today, he revealed that it was a torn bicep. MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani tweeted about it:
