If Chris Weidman’s leg break wasn’t bad enough, another one unfortunately occurred just a few weeks after for Adam Wisniewski.
Wisniewski took on Vadim Shablevskyi in a modified-rules K1 kickboxing match at an event hosted by Polish promotion Bloody Sport.
As he went for multiple kicks on Shablevskyi, Wisniewski ended up breaking his own leg as after a delayed reaction, his leg bent as it was put pressure on.
Like the Weidman injury at UFC 261 last month, it was gruesome and cringe-inducing to watch as he naturally lost the fight right at that moment.
You can watch it below but be forewarned that it’s very graphic:

As per Tapology, the 30-year-old has a 2-5 record in MMA while this latest setback puts him at 1-1 in his kickboxing career.
Shablevskyi, meanwhile, earned a win on his kickboxing debut and it will be one that he will never forget, but probably for all the wrong reasons.
One thing is for sure — it’s going to take a while before many fans stop cringing whenever a leg kick is thrown.
