Chris Weidman suffered a gruesome leg injury early in his fight against Uriah Hall on the UFC 261 pay-per-view card.

The former middleweight champion had his leg snap in half before it folded under him and he collapsed to the ground. Eventually, Weidman was taken out of the cage on a stretcher before undergoing surgery.

This week, Weidman took to social media to update fans on his recovery and detailed just how severe the fracture was.

According to Weidman, his fractured leg poked through the skin of his calf.

“A big thank you to Dr. Davidson from the @ufc for making sure I was taken care of properly and speaking to these doctors on my behalf,” Weidman said.

“It made me feel so much better having him involved because I know he had my back. The primary concern is the bone punctured through my calf and skin when I put my weight on it, making sure the laceration doesn’t get infected.”

You can check out an x-ray of the injury below.

We continue to wish Weidman a full recovery.
