Chris Weidman Suffers Sickening Broken Leg 17 Seconds Into Uriah Hall Fight At UFC 261

Chris Weidman suffered a nightmare injury against Uriah Hall tonight at UFC 261, brutally breaking his leg with his very first strike of the fight.

Round One:

Weidman with a heavy leg kick to start and oh no, he’s broken his leg really badly. It’s horrible to see, absolutely sickening.

Strong feelings of deja-vu here as this is just like the time Anderson Silva broke his leg when Chris Weidman checked one of his kicks in their rematch.

Unbelievable – you can only hope that Chris makes a full recovery from this as he’s in agony right now and his leg is in really bad shape.

The result is that Hall wins by TKO at just 17 seconds of the opening round and you’re going to have to have a strong stomach to watch the replay of this one.

Meanwhile, a bizarre record has just been set as Hall became the first fighter ever to win a UFC fight without throwing a single strike.
