UFC fighter Gunnar Nelson has had surgery to repair his injured knee, which caused him to withdraw from UFC Liverpool on May 27th.

Nelson took to his social media on Sunday and confirmed the news of his injury that he would not be able to compete in the co-main event at UFC Liverpool on May 27th.

The Icelandic fighter who trains out of the gym Mjölnir in Reykjavik Iceland, posted on his social media late last night, the following:
