UFC middleweight Chris Weidman provided a positive update regarding the recovery from a broken leg he suffered at UFC 261.
That night in Jacksonville, Chris Weidman broke his tibia and fibula in the opening moments of his encounter with Uriah Hall.
Since then, Weidman has documented his recovery process through various YouTube videos and on all of his other social media platforms, and the MMA world is lagging behind on this path.
Chris Weidman – a real warrior
In a recent interview, Chris Weidman spoke candidly about the ups and downs of the process.
“It was a Thursday last week, two days before that, I started driving, and I woke up on Thursday and as you know, I feel good today, I’m going to the gym. I figured I’d let me go to the gym, exercise a little, hit the bag and maybe a minute or two, lie down and lift my leg, but just be happy you’re in the gym. “Said Chris Weidman.
“That’s how I got there and there were a couple of guys I train with who trained and practiced kickboxing, and I said man, that bag just isn’t that much fun! So I said come here. We started doing some exercises, some toy sparring, we did a full workout and probably did about an hour, all the time on our feet. “
“I just think I’m getting better and better. Today I went out and played 18 holes of golf, which again I hadn’t planned. My kids ’pool had a swimming pool across the street for a ride, and my son was like a father if you wanted to go to the polygon. I said ah, I don’t think I can do that, and then the next thing I know is I was hitting balls! “
“I feel almost normal, unless you look at my X-rays and what my leg actually looks like because I did X-rays last week as well. My fibula bone is still completely broken, and then my tibia is completely broken, so I rely on a stick to handle the load. “
Eventual return Chris Weidman is something that many will keep in mind as we enter the second half of the year, but at this stage the first step is hope in which we can fully recover.
