Israel Adesanya reacted to Chris Weidman’s horrifying leg break at UFC 261 as many of us did at home.
‘The Last Stylebender’ was sat comfortably watching TV before jumping out of his seat and shouting ‘what the f-ck’ as Uriah Hall snapped Weidman’s leg with a checked low kick at 0:17 of the first round.

Weidman was stretchered out of the Octagon and immediately taken to hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery. The former middleweight champ appears to be on the mend and is determined to ‘get through this’, no matter what.
“I just want to let everybody know I’m so thankful for all the love and support. I really wanted to get back to you all. I know Uriah Hall was super classy and upset that this happened to me and I really appreciate that. I know Anderson Silva came out and said some real nice things. It’s pretty brutal, but I’m gonna get through this.”
Adesanya will return to the cage to defend his middleweight title against Marvin Vettori at UFC 263, which is set to take place on June 12 at a TBA location.
