  1. It’s difficult to grasp how tough these guys are; it’s a cliche, but they’re made differently. He speaks casually about all of the surgeries and injuries he’s had, but he’s also determined to fight again.

    You know it must have been some horrible shit when he talks about how painful it has been when he talks about how painful it has been when he talks about how painful it has been when he talks about how painful it has been when

  2. This person is a true warrior. When he teared up during this interview, I teared up too. “I really can’t believe this happened to me,” he said. I was in such a great position.” Chris Weidman is a lifelong fan of mine, and I wish him nothing but the best.

  3. Nerve damage is an odd thing; I had 18 stitches in my brow and still can’t feel half of my scalp; I can’t imagine the consequences of such an injury.

  4. I understand wanting to be an inspiration, but we’ve already seen this story with Silva. It’s probably time to call this a job.

  5. Chris is such a likeable person, and I have a lot of respect for him for coming out and talking about what he’s been through in this interview.

  6. This nonsense is insane. His fear of amputation was insane. I send my heartfelt condolences to The Chris and wish him a speedy recovery. I don’t want to see him fight ever again.

  7. I suppose that’s the end of his career. He doesn’t have anything to prove. Won the title, defended it, and made a few million dollars in the process. Only focus on getting stronger and doing something more to do with his life. He’s not even 40 yet, and there are plenty of other items that pique his interest that he should be doing. It isn’t the end of the planet as we know it.

  8. Hearing him talk about ‘blood pooling in his shin and foot,’ as well as other aspects of the accident and rehabilitation, made me feel sick to my stomach.

  9. Wow, it sounds like recovery is much harder than you expected.

    It sounds fuckin traumatizing how he details actually pleading for pain relief to someone. He’s a poor soul.

  10. >Would you like to fight once more?

    Wait a minute, you’ve got a titanium rod shoved down your tibia?

    >Yeah, I’d like to fight 100 percent again.

    These guys are a different breed, and we wish The Chris the best of luck in his quest to become as fit and powerful as possible.

  11. “I didn’t want anybody to go, I just wanted to hold someone’s hand,” he said, and it hit me like a ton of bricks.

    I can’t stop thinking about it: all of this for 20%?

  12. Oh, no. It was too difficult to speak about his children at the end. I’ve got a family. I’m aware of it. Oh, my goodness.

    I have a lot of respect for this man.
