Gordon Ryan Injured – Rumored To Be Out Of CJJ With Werdum

Gordon Ryan suffered a major injury over the weekend competing:

Tonight I had the honor of competing agaisnt a legend in @jgrocha who has medaled in evey major comp there is and has wins over basically everyone. We had a tightly contested match for 10 min sub only and a 5 min points ot. I managed to win by 1 point for a deep heel hook attempt. Mid way through regulation I badly injured my left knee on an attempted cross ashi entrance. I went to elevate as he sprawled and there was 5 or 6 pops in half a second or so. From then on I had 0 stability in the left knee and playing certain positions were impossible. This is the 1st time I’ve been badly injured in competition and glad I was able to keep a good poker face for the match at least 😂. I hope you guys enjoyed the match and I’m sorry I didnt the sub as I always look for. Thank you joao for another tough match and cant wait to do it again

Rumor has it he shredded his LCL which is not as bad as Meniscus but still is nothing to scoff at.
Typically a hinged brace is used for 4-6 weeks. Grade III: Severe LCL injuries typically are treated surgically due to rotational instability since they usually involve the posterolateral corner (PLC) of the knee. Patients may require bracing and physical therapy for up to 3 months to prevent later instability.
In terms of just sprains they require upto 6 weeks.

This effectively means Ryan won’t be rematiching Felipe Pena at Kasai in April which was rumored to be in the works.

CJJ last promoted Ryan’s participation 5 days ago:
