Chris Weidman’s Worst Injury Didn’t Happen In UFC: It Was In Grade School, And Involved His Penis
Here's our second penis-related sports story of the week, and we swear this will be the last one (barring, of course, late-breaking penis news).
Chris Weidman is the current UFC Middleweight Champion and holds the No. 3 spot in the UFC pound-for-pound rankings. He was being interviewed on HuffPost Live on Thursday about his upcoming bout with Luke Rockhold, which sounds like a made-up Flintstones name, but it's actually a fighter. Anyway, he was asked about his most painful injury, and startled host Caitlyn Becker with his answer.
"The worst thing that comes into my head instantly is my penis getting caught in my zipper," Weidman said.
Yep. He was in the first grade, in the school restroom. True story ...
"They called the paramedics. Yeah. Then they cut my jeans off completely, to where the only things left are the zipper and me naked -- including all my teachers and principals, everyone looking at me when I'm naked," Weidman said. "Then they put me on the stretcher, and of course the bell rings in the school, so everybody comes out of their classes and I'm going out on the stretcher, and everyone's like, 'What's wrong with him?' I'm like, 'Nothing!'"
Nothing worse than making it to the sixth grade burdened by the rumor that your penis had been amputated.
