“Anyone stating I celebrated when Anderson’s leg snapped is completely erroneous. I didn’t know his leg snapped. I just imagined I checked his leg kick good, and he went down in soreness, which often comes about in sparring. Distressing for a shorter time, but receives improved swiftly – type of like a system shot. Right after circling the octagon, I realized that he was in critical suffering by his yelling and quickly went and checked on him and tried using to console him. That’s when I seen him holding his leg in area. There was no happiness on my behalf from that place on. I then went and pushed stability out of the way so his coaches could get into the octagon and he could have some common faces future to him throughout that horrific event.”

“Update working day selection 2.
The PT group bought me to walk with a walker now. Not entertaining. Also, my bladder figures were being significant, and I couldn’t go to the toilet, so they informed me I would have to get a catheter. I do not want that, so I instructed them to give me an hour, and if I could not do it by then, they could do Catheter. Thank God I was capable to get it done. After deep focus for an hour, I could pee that out, so I did not have to get the catheter. The purpose why it was so tricky is that I’m doing it lying down, and I have Anesthesia and soreness killers in me. 👍 #ufc261 #recovery”
