Two weeks ago, the champion received surgery for his labrum tear on his left shoulder. “I am feeling great,” he said in an interview on The Roman Show. “I feel so excited. I am one step closer to getting in there and defending my title.” Stojadinovic said prior to his fight against the then champion Jordan Parsons, he had several injuries one of them being the shoulder, but decided to train and fight regardless. “I had a few injuries but I didn’t know how bad it was,” he said. He tried to avoid surgery by going to rehab and taking it light, but it was unavoidable. “I tried rehab but it didn’t work,” he said. “I went to train and it popped open again.” He said he is looking forward to rehab, which is about 6 weeks from now and he is being very careful. “Any wrong movement can tear it,” he said. Expect him to jump in the cage and face off against interim CFA featherweight champion Sean Soriano late 2013 or early 2014. Follow the Pitbull at
