Chris Weidman on his comeback fight
Recently on The MMA Hour, the former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman spoke about his upcoming match and fearlessly shared what he looks forward to doing; Weidman seems to be excited for the match ahead.
He also reflects on his injury. “The first thing I’m doing in that fight against Brad Tavares is throwing the hardest leg kick of my life, right on his shinbone,” Weidman said, as quoted by mmamania.com. “I do want to do that.
It’s worth it, I think it’s important for you to face your fears. Anything you might be uncomfortable with, just go ahead and do it. Weidman further said: “Yeah, that’s why I need to kick with it quick, get it out of the system.
I just hope Brad Tavares, I hope we’re on the same page. He’s not allowed to check the first leg kick. Just let it land, please. Then all is good after that, may the best man win”. Weidman reflects on his injury: “I’ve never seen anything like that before where you see the bones just pop right through the skin, I can’t believe what that looked like.
I just can’t believe I’ve been through that, I’m coming back, and I feel as good as I am”.
