Demetrious Johnson Broke Right Leg During UFC 130 Win Over Miguel Torres

UFC bantamweight, Demetrious Johnson has revealed that he broke his leg throwing a kick during his UFC 130 win over Miguel Torres this past weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada, although he stays optimistic saying “If you ain’t fighting, you ain’t making money”.

Johnson, speaking via MMAJunkie.com, said:

“Yeah, the leg is broken. The fibula bone is completely fractured. Once I kicked him and he checked it, I stepped back and heard crunch, crunch, crunch. I figured it might be broke. (If) you ain’t fighting, you ain’t making money.”

“So I’m loading up on calcium and drinking lots of milk. I’m on crutches right now. I don’t see it as a setback. I’m going to let it heal. My body is fine, and my mind is sharp. I’m not letting the negative comments wear me down. It’s not up to me what the judges decide.”

“I like where I’m at. I was 138 this morning. I was 140 for Miguel. My strength is not an issue. He’s a big dude, and I was able to control him.”
