Injury Update: Demetrious Johnson Tears Labrum, Sidelined for the Next Three Months

As much as we hate the fact that Demetrious Johnson has been forced to pull out of his upcoming flyweight title fight with John Moraga, we can’t exactly declare that he hasn’t earned a little break from the sport either. Granted, an injury vacation isn’t really a vacation at all (especially with an injury as serious as Johnson’s — we’ll get to that in a second), but have any of you realized that “Mighty Mouse” has fought seven times since entering the UFC in February of 2011?

It was a damn respectable pace and one that was destined to come to a crashing halt at some point in Johnson’s career. Thankfully, it appears that Johnson’s time away from the octagon will be limited to just a few months. As first revealed by Johnson’s AMC Pankration coach, Matt Hume, the flyweight champ has suffered a torn labrum that will keep him out of action for up to three months. There has been no word yet on how this will affect Johnson’s ability to pack into a hilariously undersized car with 42 of his closest friends.

Johnson was scheduled to face Moraga at the April 13th-scheduled TUF 17 Finale, but according to a recent appearance on The MMA Hour, the two are currently in talks to meet at UFC 161 in June.

    For some reason, I thought "labrum" was a part of the female anatomy.

    Speaking of tearing labrum's - I heard that J.Jones is a new dad today. Is that you Jones or Bones?

    I heard the only way to tighten up a labrum is by doing lots and lots of keegles.
