Chris Weidman was filmed walking on an anti-gravity treadmill as part of his rehab. Conor McGregor expressed his reaction to the footage. ‘Notorious’ tweeted in response to a post from The Mac Life, saying, “Excellent to see!”.
Weidman was quick to take notice of the tweet and thanked McGregor.
Afterwards, Weidman posted a video of his time on the treadmill as part of his initial steps toward rehab. The following is a link to a video:
At UFC 261 against Uriah Hall, Weidman sustained a horrible leg injury. The event was eerily similar to Anderson Silva’s injury at UFC 168 against Weidman.
Hall, who paced a flawless scan for the incoming strike, snapped Weidman’s tibia and fibula while tossing a leg kick. Hall became the first fighter in UFC history to win a fight without throwing a single punch since the injury caused a stoppage.
McGregor was swift to tweet his review of the injury and what could have caused it after the match.
McGregor has a history of leg kicks, having had his leg made lame by Dustin Poirier’s calf kicks at UFC 257. The Irishman’s defeat would come as a result of the punches, as he was unable to place much weight on his knee, which finally buckled. Poirier went on to defeat ‘Notorious’ by TKO for the first time in his career.
