IOWA CITY, IA – University of Iowa 165-pound defending national champion wrestler Mark Perry has undergone knee surgery. The announcement came today from Iowa’s Head Wrestling Coach, Tom Brands.

The Hawkeye senior, from Stillwater, OK, will miss 2-3 weeks of action. Perry had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee and is expected back on the mat in early February. Perry, a three-time all-American, has a career record of 89-15. He currently has a 13-2 record and is ranked first nationally. His nine pins, this season, are best on the team.

“We had the best doctor on the planet do the surgery,” said Brands. “We know he’s in good hands with Dr. Ned Amendola.”
