Brett Okomoto was the first to break the news of the Robert Whittaker injury, and what a kick to the pills that was. I know I’m not the only one that has been DYING to see Bobby Knuckles back in the cage, and now the MMA Gods are making us wait even longer. There’s not a ton of details out right now but there are reports that he’s going into surgery today. I have no idea how long it takes to come back from a hernia surgery but anything less than 8 hours is wildly disappointing.
This once again proves how no fight is safe in the MMA world. At least with it being last minute we don’t have to worry about Dana trying to swindle an Interim title out of this. We should all say a prayer that Bobby K. is able to make a comeback before that even becomes a part of the conversation.
