Chris Weidman underwent surgery after gruesomely snapping his right leg during his Sunday’s fight against Uriah Hall at UFC 261, his wife has revealed on social media.

The fight was stopped shortly after it started as Weidman, a Long Island native, went down with a shocking broken leg.

He was later stretchered off.

“Well that was horrible. Freak things happen in life and plans get crushed. It’s been a lonnnggg day but so happy to finally see this man of mine post surgery,” Marivi Weidman wrote in an Instagram post.

“My heart breaks for my husband because I know the work and dedication that he puts into his training everyday and the great man that he is, so I only want the best for him. While this absolutely sucks in the moment and for some weeks to come, we are completely overwhelmed by the love and support we have far and wide and are very aware how blessed we are. All of that overpowers the awfulness of this situation.”

Weidman, 36, was on the other side of a similarly freak injury when UFC legend Anderson Silva broke his leg kicking him at UFC 168 in 2013.

“My deepest and most sincere sentiment champ. Have faith, I wish you a speedy recovery,” Silva wrote on Instagram.
