Clements Undergoes Surgery
Via his Twitter account Tuesday evening, Clements had this to say, “12 hours before I go under the knife. Not looking forward to it, but looking forward to 6 months from now when for the first time in over a year I will be able to train properly.”
Clements also stated he has two torn rotator cuffs, a torn shoulder labrum, torn biceps tendon, and arthritis in his right shoulder.
Clements won his UFC debut defeating Keith Wisniewski by a split decision at UFC 145, before losing his next bout to Matthew Riddle by submission.
The 36-year-old fighter has an 11-5 professional record. He signed a 5-fight UFC contract earlier this year, but will now miss significant time as he recovers from surgery and prepares for his next shot at a UFC bout.
