Chris Weidman Already Up, Jogging After Knee Surgery

When Chris Weidman finished Anderson Silva last year – the first time – to become UFC middleweight champion, he shocked the MMA world.

When he did it again to close out 2013, most felt they had just seen the unthinkable.

Now, Weidman is proving that maybe he does have superhuman powers after all, as he released a video of himself slowly jogging around the gym. For someone the caliber of athlete of Weidman, this isn’t special, but you have to remember he underwent double knee surgery late Tuesday night.

“Surgery on both knees (Tuesday) and able to get a slight jog in (Wednesday),” he wrote.

The video, which you can view below, was filmed a day after his operation. So maybe there will be no issue in Weidman being ready to go in July when he squares off with Lyoto Machida.
