UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman will undergo minor surgery on both of his knees on Tuesday, according to a report from Ariel Helwani on UFC Tonight.

The injury to Weidman’s left knee stems from a lingering issue from Weidman’s high school days, in which his lateral meniscus would lock in the joint and cause him severe pain. According to Weidman, the problem recurred twice over the past week, lasting upwards of 10 to 15 minutes in the most recent instance, which led him to seek the advice of doctors and ultimately schedule an arthroscopic scope procedure to clean up the tear.

Weidman also plans to undergo similar surgery to clean up and repair a meniscal tear in his right knee.
