Chris Weidman Suffers Gruesome Leg Injury in UFC Fight against Uriah Hall
Former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman suffered an horrendous injury just seconds into his fight against Uriah Hall, and he was carried out on a stretcher.
The fight had just begin … 17 second in, Weidman delivered a leg kick which Hall checked, and you literally see his leg snap. It takes a second for it to register, and Weidman then collapses in pain as he tumbles to the mat.
Hall won by TKO, in front of a packed crowd at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville. Weidman was taken out on a stretcher.
After the fight, Hall said, “I’ve got nothing but respect for Chris Weidman … He’s truly one of the best. It’s a crazy story, that he was the first man I fought that defeated me [in 2010], that introduced me to fear. I didn’t know what fear was. Then we went different paths. He was the first person to defeat Anderson [in the UFC], and I was the last. It’s crazy how we ended up here again.”
Hall was gracious … “I wanted to put on a great performance, but man, I feel so bad. I hope he’s OK. I wish his family well.”
