This is not good news for my fans… I had a serious injury, partial breaking of bicipes ligament. I know that you are excited to see me again and I am too , but i need some more time to return to show all my potential to you in the cage, soon you will see me again. probably in June. God bless. God bless. . . 🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷 . . Esta não é uma notícia tão boa para meus queridos fãs. Sei que estão ansiosos para me verem lutando novamente e vocês iriam me ver em abril mas teremos que adiar devido a uma séria lesão no bíceps que tive. Em breve poderei mostrar todo meu potencial mais uma vez, provavelmente em junho. Até lá amigos. Deus abençoe A todos! #somostodosborrachinha #theeraser
