Anthony Johnson has undergone eye surgery to repair damage from an accidental eye poke he suffered in a TKO loss to Kevin Burns at UFC Fight Night 14 on July 19th, Johnson told MMAWeekly.com:
“I had surgery. It was pretty intense for me. My retina was damaged, possibly detached, and the laceration was pretty long. It was basically from one end of my eye to the other. They did laser surgery that took about two hours, put some stitches on it basically.
The doctor said I should be back in the September. So, hopefully youâ€™ll get to see me do my thing in September or October.
Everything should be fine. Iâ€™ll go back soon (for a check-up) and theyâ€™ll just make sure that I donâ€™t have any infections.”
