Sean Strickland suffered a major scare over the weekend.

Per an Instagram post that has since been deleted, the 27-year-old UFC welterweight explained that was involved in a motorcycle accident after a session at the King’s MMA gym in Huntington Beach, Calif.

He provided an update on Sunday via a short video, in which he also mentions when he expects to be back in action:

“I think I was going straight and a car turned out in front of me,” Strickland said. “I got into an accident going 45 miles per hour. I was unconscious for about three hours. I got knee surgery last night, the doctor said it’s not that bad. So I should be back at it in a few months.”

The day prior, he shared an image of himself in a neck brace:
