Chris Weidman Responds To Claims That He Should Retire – ‘I’m Not Done’

Chris Weidman made his return to the octagon at UFC 292 following his broken leg against Uriah Hall in 2021.

In his comeback fight, the former middleweight champion faced Brad Tavares. However, he suffered a unanimous-decision loss.

After the fight, Chris had injuries on both of his legs and was bandaged up, but it is not known how bad the situation is currently.

Although Dana White urged Weidman to retire, the MMA fighter does not plan on doing so.

“It was some experience. I was really grateful the whole time. Just to make that walk again, not knowing if I would’ve been able to do this again. To be back in this arena and have a fight week and make weight and everything, I was really grateful for it. The energy in the crowd was really something, I can’t thank them enough.

“To have that much love, to have that many people around the world have an understanding of what I went through. What it really took to get here and they really came out hard to support me. Even in a fight that I lost, was awesome to me… Whatever you want to accomplish, you can do it.” “I’m not done, so I’ll be back better than ever. But this was a good opportunity to get back in the octagon,” Weidman

Nevertheless, MMA fans on social media backed up White’s view that the 39-year-old should retire.
