Per Brett Okamoto of ESPN, Weidman broke the tibia and fibula in his proper leg when Corridor checked a leg kick. The 36-year-old stays within the hospital after having a titanium rod inserted into his leg by way of surgical procedure.
“Fairly brutal, however I will get by way of this,” Weidman stated within the video. “I feel it should be eight weeks till I can stroll with out crutches, drive and all that. So far as coaching, they stated between six to 12 months I will be good to go.”
“I am looking for the blessing in disguise, a silver lining. Actually, as quickly because it occurred and I hit the ground, noticed my leg and the ache began hitting me, I attempted to maintain my thoughts on one thing optimistic that may come out of this. I am hopeful one thing will come out of it that is good, as a result of this isn’t enjoyable. I can not consider it occurred.”
Weidman has now misplaced six of his final eight bouts, and his standing within the UFC is up within the air.
“It is arduous to picture him getting back from this given the stage in his profession, and that is fairly heartbreaking,” Mike Bohn wrote for MMA Junkie. “Combating looks like a distant aim at this level regardless.”
