Chris Weidman Releases Emotional Video During Ongoing Recovery From Broken Leg

Chris Weidman has been documenting his ongoing recovery from the broken leg he suffered against Uriah Hall last month and in a newly released video he’s seen getting emotional as he returns home for the first time and tries to come to terms with the daunting challenge that lies ahead of him as he tries to heal both mentally and physically from this traumatic injury.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen,” A tearful Weidman admitted. “My foot is still numb. Hoping that comes back and I can move it the way I moved it before the fight. I’ve had 23 surgeries in my life but there’s nothing that’s stopped me but am I going to have the motivation and the passion to push through this long process again? It’s kind of scary. I don’t know.”

“…I just don’t want this to be the end. I feel like I have more in me so I just need this to be a short lived thing that I’m able to look back on as part of my story.

“If I had to retire, I’d be broken with that but not being able to wrestle around with my boys and show them how good I am at certain things and be able to instill that in them. That’s the hardest.”
