Former UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman (14-4 MMA) underwent ‘unexpected’ neck surgery on Wednesday.
“The All American” announced the news on his official Instagram page.
“Kind of an unexpected neck surgery yesterday,” Weidman wrote on his Instagram. “I’ll explain soon, but I’m all good, and I’ll be healthy soon.”
Weidman had previously underwent surgery to repair a herniated disk in June of 2016.
The former middleweight kingpin, Weidman, described his recent procedure as a “disk replacement surgery”.
