The American middleweight suffered one of the worst injuries in MMA history when he shockedly broke his leg in two places just 17 seconds after last weekend’s fight with Uriah Hall at UFC 261.
Weidman sustained the horror injury when his leg broke in a collision when Hall opposed his kick, immediately putting the fight off.

The 36-year-old has since undergone surgery to repair his double leg fracture and revealed the gruesome injury by releasing a pre-surgery photo showing a clean fracture of both his fibular and tibia bones.
The 15-6 fighter, who previously twice defeated UFC legend Anderson Silva, also posted X-ray photos of his leg after his surgery.
Weidman’s wife provided an update on the UFC fighter by posting a photo of him with his thumbs up in a hospital bed after surgery on Monday.
In an emotional statement on social media next to the photo, she wrote: ‘Well, that was awful. Strange things happen in life and plans are crushed. It’s been a long day, but I’m so happy to finally see this man of mine after surgery, ” Marivi Weidman wrote.

‘Everything went well, thank you Lord! Very grateful to the medical staff, UFC family @danawhite @reedharrisufc #allieraimondo, our management team @vaynersports @sarahzemonek and our family and friends who gather here to help with the children.
‘My heart breaks for my husband because I know the work and dedication he puts into his training every day and the great man he is so I only want the best for him. While this is absolutely worthless for the moment and for weeks to come, we are completely overwhelmed with the love and support that we have far and wide and are very aware of how blessed we are.
All of this overwhelms the awfulness of this situation. We are overwhelmed by the offer of our friends and family to jump on flights to come and help us without hesitation. We are so grateful and love you all !! It has been a crazy year so far, but we Weidmans are a force and covered with grace and mercy every day!
“ We were reminded this year how precious every day is and I am so grateful to have spent another day on earth alongside my loved one, even though it is in a hospital room far from home #teamweidman. ”
