Tyson Pedro spoke with MMAjunkie about undergoing ACL reconstruction surgery after his loss to Shogun Rua at UFC Fight Night 142. Highlights are below:

On his loss to Shogun Rua: “‘Shogun’ got me. When he kicked me, he kicked my foot out and it was a non-contact tear. He got me good. I tried to pretend like it didn’t happen, I didn’t tell anyone. I couldn’t push off the floor, when I was standing up I was falling over. I didn’t know what happened, but I knew it was bad.”

On his window for a return: “I haven’t even thought about it. I’ve got so many other plans during this time and I plan on coming back a little bit heavier, I plan on coming back a little bit stronger. I plan on changing a lot of things.”
