UFC Middleweight Chris Weidman posted a post surgery video of himself on his official Twitter account on Thursday. The mostly incoherent Weidman mumbled something about needing to drive back to Long Island. Chris updated that he will be 90% recovered in 3 months, 100% recovered in 4 months.
Weidman also said on Twitter on Wednesday that he had suffered more than just a torn labrum as he had previously revealed to MMA Fight Corner. “Surgery went perfect. On my way back to Long Island now. Had a torn labrum and rotator cuff, AC joint seperation and slight tear in ligament,” he posted.
As far as his recovery process, a 2013 spring return would seem to be the earliest Weidman can get back to action. “I’m told I’ll be at 100-percent at 4 months if everything goes smoothly,” he wrote on his Twitter.
The Long Island, NY native has had a rough couple of months. Hurricane Sandy obliterated the fighters home which was destroyed down to the foundation on which it stood. Then he was injured and had to pull out of a highly-anticipated middleweight clash.
Weidman was expected to face Tim Boetsch at UFC 155 but withdrew due to his injuries. His teammate at Serra-Longo BJJ, Costa Philippou has filled in for him against Boestch in the event taking place Dec 29 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Below is the video Weidman posted on his Twitter. If you can make out more that one sentence, I applaud you.
