UFC Lightweight athlete Diego Sanchez was going about his normal training routine on Monday 26th January, when he shot in for a double leg take down and got hit with a hard knee breaking his collar-bone during the training session.

The surgery was a success. Diego is praying for a fast recovery (usually around 16 weeks) so training can resume.

We would like to wish Diego a speedy and healthy recovery, as I for one can not wait to see him back in the octagon where he belongs.
