It happened quickly, that Brandon Thatch took the UFC’s welterweight division by storm.

With first-round stoppage wins in his first two fights with the promotion, including a “Knockout of the Night” win in his debut, the Coloradan is admittedly still soaking in all the buzz from his fast start – which includes eight straight wins before signing with the UFC.

But now Thatch (11-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC) is ready to sit back for a moment, nurse up and come back healthier – and, he hopes, even better...

He can't take time off. He owes it to the fans and the UFC.

I look forward to seeing him again.

Two fights that ended within three mins equals time off
Funny

So it's ok for the UFC champion (GSP) to take time off, but not Thatch?!!

He's not planning on taking two years off like GSP. He had his first two UFC fights within 2 and a half months of each other. I'm sure we'll see him back in like April the latest. A young, hungry fighter like him probably just wants to round out his game as much as he can
