Andre Petroski on his injury
Recently Andre Petroski spoke about his injury quite expressively on MMA Junkie Radio.
He reveals that UFC was very supportive in helping him treat his injury. “I had a tear in my shoulder, my rotator cuff,” Petroski said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “It was less than 50 percent width, so it didn’t require surgery.
The UFC helped me out a lot. They got me set up with stem cells and PRP, and all that recovery stuff. “I took like two months off from training, and it got better. I did a lot of rehab for it, but knock on wood, luckily so far it hasn’t been re-irritated in this camp”.
Petroski further said: “We’re going to do it all, man, even in my last fight, I spent significantly more time in the stand up. I think that I’m going to force him to shoot on me, which is going to be in my favor, for sure”.
The upcoming match is a fantastic opportunity for both fighters to level up their game and get considered to be featured in the top 15 rankings of the competitive middleweight division.
