Mike Pierce looks like he will not need surgery for knee and ankle injuries suffered when Rousimar Palhares kept a heel hook on two long on Wednesday.
Pierce told Ariel Helwani that he suffered a sprained MCL and an almost completely torn ligament on the outside of his left ankle. He said he should be feeling better in two or three weeks and right now it doesn't look like he'll need surgery.
