The veteran UFC fighter, Sean Strickland, He showed strong images of his injury on Instagram and is all the rage on the networks. He himself had an accident while riding his motorcycle, where he completely destroyed his leg. He was able to capture everything in images, so, just over a year after what happened, the photos were broadcast again. He was clearly filled with messages of support, after seeing that he really was miraculously saved.
«I left something of my kneecap on the road. A doctor approached me and said ‘you are going to operate’ and at that moment I started crying a little, “he said Strickland. “I don’t know if it’s just the lifelong battle against depression that fighters have, but I remember waking up like ‘fuck, hope I can fight again.’ As for the actual accident, it was not so traumatic, but I simply woke up with ‘you are going to have knee surgery,’ ”he began, before his return at UFC Vegas 12.
His sad stories
At the same time, Sean he also dictated: “That was what really got me. The only thing I ever did was be a loser and be an MMA fighter. That hit me hard. My kneecap tendon tore so my kneecap was sprawled out, practically hanging off my damn skin. After that, they went and sewed my patella tendon into my kneecap. Then I had an MRI about three months later just to see how everything was and I still have a fairly large quadricep tear.
But that would have put me out for another year and a half, so I said fuck it, I’ll take care of that. Let me tell you this: all the doctors I spoke to said that I shouldn’t fight again. The only people who really supported me in going back to the gym and fighting again were all the people at the UFC Performance Institute. They were like a bright light to me. I was going there and I couldn’t even go up the stairs and they told me ‘you’ll come back, you’ll be fine’. It sucked, “said the veteran.
To close, Sean Strickland He also reported: “If you look at my Instagram, there is a photo of me boxing 12 weeks after my injury with a knee brace. The doctor thought that the kneecap tendon would break if he bent his leg, but other than that, okay, just don’t bend it. So it was like shit. I put a brace on my leg to block it and I was boxing 12 weeks after my injury.
