Former UFC champion Chris Weidman has surgery after suffering ‘freak’ leg break

Former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman has undergone successful surgery after suffering a gruesome broken leg during his bout on Saturday at UFC 261.

The 36-year-old broke his right leg just 17 seconds into his fight with Uriah Hall. Weidman threw a leg kick which Hall blocked with his own leg, snapping Weidman’s upon impact.
The middleweight fight was immediately halted with Hall declared the winner as Weidman was stretched off to a nearby Jacksonville hospital.
On Sunday, Weidman’s wife Marivi posted a picture of the American fighter in his hospital bed after his surgery.
