Chris Weidman lost his fight against Uriah Hall yesterday night with just 17 seconds on the clock – having been left with a SERIOUSLY mangled leg after throwing a leg kick.
Weidman had already seen what can go wrong when throwing leg kicks in the UFC, having broken Anderson Silva’s leg in December 2013. Weidman checked a kick from Silva, and in the process, broke the legendary fighter’s leg.
Unfortunately for Weidman, he ended up on the wrong side of it during his Uriah Hall last night, and after just 17 seconds, too. Just to issue a warning to all those eating whole reading this, it’s probably best to close the tab now.

Weidman, is going to face a lengthy recovery and a considerable amount of time out of the octagon. It’s a freak, unfortunate incident, but one which, of all people, Weidman knew could happen when throwing leg kicks in this sport.
Get well soon, Chris.
