Pros react to Chris Weidman’s gruesome broken leg at UFC 261
Weidman’s foot folded gruesomely around Hall’s shin, and he dropped to the mat as he planted on his right foot. The former champion writhed in pain as the bout was instantly called off just 17 seconds into the pay-per-view bout at Vystar Veteran’s Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Fla.
The audience sat in shock, with some behind the UFC commentary booth crying as Weidman was put on a stretcher and taken out of the octagon. Here is how fighters reacted to the fight’s end.
Holy shit! What a crazy world we live in. You couldn’t write it.
