Gunnar out of UFC Liverpool injured

Gunnar Nelson has to withdraw from his fight against Neil Magny at UFC Liverpool due to injury. Gunnar to issued an statement on this:
"Unfortunately I have to withdraw from my fight against Neil Magny on May 27th in Liverpool. Last weekend I injured my knee. I will undergo an operation right away and Ill be out for 8-10 weeks. Im sorry to my family, my opponent, my teammates, the fans and the UFC.

This is a huge blow to me and Im at a loss for words to describe the disappointment I am feeling. I was really feeling up for this fight, the training camp was going great and everything was just perfect until this happened. When all is said and done this is the fight business and injuries are sometimes an unfortunate part of it given the physical rigors us athletes put our bodies through. I will keep on evolving as a fighter while Im on the sidelines and Ill be back as soon as I can."
Update April 30th: Gunnar had surgery today and all went well. He will need 8-10 weeks of recovery and then it's straight to the gym again... looking at a fight this year for sure.
