UFC fighter Chris Weidman snapped his leg in half during a fight against Uriah Hall on Saturday night and had to be transported out of the arena on a stretcher.
Weidman, a former UFC middleweight champion, “appeared to suffer the same gruesome leg injury in a loss to Uriah Hall that Anderson Silva suffered during a fight against Weidman nearly eight years ago,” ESPN reported. “Hall (17-9) defeated Weidman (15-6) via TKO just 17 seconds into their 185-pound contest at UFC 261, when Weidman’s lower right leg snapped after Hall checked his very first leg kick.”

He still had one good one.
Not Theismann-strength but mighty close.
Yeah, but no more ass-kicking contests for him.
Uriah left him in a Heep.
He can come back stronger. It’s not the end of him, if he doesn’t want it to end.
Hulk Hogan had his leg broken by his trainer and he came back and had a viable career.
Alex Smith, the quarterback, had 17 surgeries have a similar injury. He eventually came back but one isn't as vulnerable in football as in the UFC coming off an injury like that.
Why would I want to watch this. Sports coverage has always been a little too ghoulish for its never ending focus on serious injuries.
Walk it off.
Bad place for a break. Tibia fx frequently go to nonunion because of poor blood supply, especially distally.
He is young so there is less chance of a non union but the position of the break & the force of the trauma increase his chances of nonunion. I wish him good doctors & rapid healing.
Saw it live. Don’t need to see that again.
The fight before that one had the fight stopped because one guys leg went numb from a kick behind the knee.
Glad to see Rose beat the Chinese chick!
I felt like I was gonna faint when it snapped and I am not the fainty type.
WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THE MECHANISM FOR THAT INJURY? HE KICKED THE OTHER GUY BELOW THE KNEE ON THE SIDE.
There is a very valuable lesson.
When one gets into a fight there is a good chance of getting hurt.
Even under control circumstances.
Never kick an iron bar!
“...Weidman’s lower right leg snapped after Hall checked his very first leg kick.”
Kicking is dirty fighting.
