While many expected Gunnar Nelson to dominate Rick Story, that wasn’t the case two weeks ago in Sweden.
Despite suffering a fractured tibia, Story says that he is healing nicely and appeared on Monday’s episode of The MMA Hour to give fans an update on his progress.
“It’s getting better everyday,” Story said. “Right after surgery it sucked, but the pain went away pretty quick. It’s still a little painful, but I think it’ll be good to go in the time that the doctor told me.”
The fighter confessed that a bone fragment was removed from his angle, and while it was a positive sign that doctors chose not to put him in a cast, he still has wear a boot until he is fully recovered.
“It was in the middle of the fight for sure — I know it was close to the beginning because I quit throwing my left leg kick because it was hurting,” he said. “It hurt to step on and put pressure [on it]. I watched the fight through [afterwards], and it could have even happened at the last second of the first round when I kicked Gunnar’s arms, or his elbows. So I’m not really sure. I saw myself walking off and was limping a little bit after that kick.”
