Aljamain Sterling, the reigning UFC bantamweight champion, has announced plans to travel to Colombia for a stem cell procedure aimed at resolving his bicep injury. The news has sparked buzz within the MMA community as fans wonder what the future holds for the bantamweight title picture.
With top contenders Henry Cejudo and Sean O’Malley vying for the title, many have been concerned about Sterling’s health, especially regarding his persistent bicep problem. Although some have suggested surgical intervention, Sterling has made it clear that he wants to avoid going under the knife.
On a recent podcast appearance, Sterling shared his intentions to seek answers in Medellín. “Funk Master,” has been battling health issues for some time and hopes the stem cell procedure will be the solution to his bicep problem.
.Next weekend I’m off to Medellin, Colombia for the @bioXcellerator stem cell treatment program! I’m very optimistic that this will have me back and ready to compete sooner than later 💪🏾

“Next week I’m gonna be flying out to Colombia over in Medellín.”
“I believe this [stem cell] procedure will help get me through without needing surgery and get me back to competing, and being at 100%. I’m very much looking forward to this, I know Joe Rogan has nothing but good things to say, I know Kamaru Usman, Frankie Edgar, Chris Weidman, Al Iaquinta. So, I’m hoping I can follow in these guys’ footsteps and have nothing but success with these results and the trip out there to Colombia.”
“Bro, game changer [if he doesn’t need surgery]. So, hopefully. I trust you guys. I know you guys have nothing but good things with reviews, and I’m hoping I can be another candidate and show the world that the procedure and the protocol does work.”
