Chris Weidman has undergone successful surgery after breaking his leg at UFC 261 on Saturday, April 24.
The former middleweight champion suffered the horrific injury just 17 seconds into his clash with Uriah Hall after throwing the first kick. As soon as the kick landed, Weidman’s leg was immediately injured and he fell to the canvas in agonizing pain as medical personnel rushed to help him.
The bout was immediately waved off as Weidman, 36, fell to the mat in agony.
