UFC star Chris Weidman has revealed a gruesome X-ray image of what his snapped leg looked like before his surgery.

The American middleweight suffered one of the worst injuries in MMA history when he broke his leg in two places in shocking fashion just 17 seconds into last weekend’s fight with Uriah Hall at UFC 261.

Weidman suffered the horror injury when his leg broke on impact as Hall countered his kick, causing the fight to be immediately waved off.

The 36-year-old has since had an operation to fix his double leg break and revealed the extent of just how horrific the injury was by releasing a pre-surgery picture, which showed a clean break of both his Fibula and Tibia bones.

The 15-6 fighter, who previously twice defeated UFC legend Anderson Silva, also posted pictures showing X-ray images of his leg after his operation.

Weidman’s wife provided an update on the UFC fighter by posting a picture of him with his thumbs up in a hospital bed after undergoing surgery on Monday.

In an emotional statement on social media alongside the picture, she wrote:  ‘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.

‘Everything went well thank you Lord! Very thankful for the medical staff, UFC family @danawhite @reedharrisufc #allieraimondo, our management team @vaynersports @sarahzemonek and our family and friends here rallying to help with the kids. 

‘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. We are blown away by our friends and family offering to hop on flights to come help us without hesitation. We are so grateful and love you all!! It’s been a crazy year so far but us Weidmans are a force and covered in Grace and Mercy everyday! 

‘We were reminded this year how precious each day is and I am so thankful to be spending another day on earth next to my love even if it’s in a hospital room far from home #teamweidman.’
