Following a pair of victories in his first two Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bouts, top welterweight prospect Brandon Thatch (11-1) informed MMAmania.com that he's on the shelf for four-to-five months due to "wear and tear."

28 years old, 12 fights, only about two fights per year leads me to this thought:
Either he is really mature and knows that he needs healing time to refresh and recharge or he is a gym rat and is probably not going to have a long or fruitful career as he starts to rack up injuries that surgery. Only time will tell I guess.

Not calling you out on it man. Calling the media out for reposting articles

He probably spoke to a media company saying it in November, and now he's told a different one now. Same story, just 3 months later

I'd rather him rest and heal his injuries then fight and not perform up to his potential and get hurt even more....

Probably a smart move to lengthen his carreer. This tells me that he is financially stable enough to sit on the side lines. Either he has money saved up, someone funding him or has a stable side job that makes this feasible. Unfortunately there are a lot of fighters who dont have the luxury and must fight with injuries in order to keep the dream and lifestyle afloat.

4 months isn't all that long between fights in the UFC, anyway.
