Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight king Tyron Woodley won’t be fighting as soon as he had hoped, as a thumb injury sustained at UFC 228 in his conquest of Darren Till will keep him on the sideline.

ESPN reported on Friday that Woodley would be out a minimum 8 to 12 weeks after impending surgery on his right hand.

Woodley defeated Till after dropping him with a massive overhand counter in the second round before laying down some brutal punches and elbows. Woodley then finished the fight with a brabo choke.

The champion was initially optimistic about a quick turnaround, as Kamaru Usman’s name was thrown around for a potential UFC 230 showdown at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 3.
