Demetrious Johnson Reveals Broken Leg Suffered at UFC 130; Hopes To Return at UFC 137


Demetrious ‘Mighty Mouse’ Johnson felt like he was fighting on one leg against Miguel Torres at UFC 130 and it turns out he actually was.

A post fight x-ray revealed he suffered a broken leg during the fight, but he battled through and got a decision win.

The win didn’t come without controversy however, and Johnson discusses the fight at length and what he felt he did right to get the victory that night.

While Johnson will be out of action for the next several weeks dealing with the injury, he’s hopeful to return on the upcoming UFC 137 card in October featuring Georges St-PIerre vs. Nick Diaz.
