Chris Weidman dismisses claims about his leg injury Post-UFC 292

Chris Weidman dismisses claims about his leg. Chris Weidman says claims surrounding the damage done to his legs at UFC 292 are being overblown.

Weidman as of late returned to the Octagon after being absent from pro MMA competition for two a long time. He took on Brad Tavares within the highlighted preparatory bout on the UFC 292 card. The previous UFC Middleweight Champion was on the getting conclusion of a few brutal leg kicks from Tavares. Whereas Weidman appeared heart, he misplaced the battle through consistent choice.

After the battle, UFC President Dana White encouraged Chris Weidman to resign. White said he listened that the “All-American” tore tendons in his leg. This claim has presently been invalidated by the previous middleweight boss.

Weidman took to his “Won’t Back Down” podcast to clear the air on whether or not he has ligament damage.

He said,

“I got MRIs done on my tibia and fibula on both legs. Got MRIs on both my knees, X-rays. I’ve been waiting for results and I got the results back. There was a lot of speculation through the UFC. The doctor from the UFC told Dana White right away that I tore my ACL and my LCL.”

I was always like, ‘I don’t know where they’re getting that from,’ because right after the fight they didn’t move my leg around, they didn’t test anything. My legs were super swollen, so we got ice on them and that was it. So, I don’t know where they were getting that from, but I didn’t think my ligaments were torn, and guess what? Who was right? I was right. There was no ligament tears at all.

Weidman admitted he does have a fracture in his left leg. The “All-American” said his recovery time should only be four weeks.
