Chris Curtis reportedly suffered a torn hamstring during the UFC Vegas 90 main event. 

On Saturday night, number six-ranked middleweight Brendan Allen was supposed to headline UFC Vegas 90 against number five-ranked Marvin Vettori. Unfortunately, Vettori pulled out due to an undisclosed injury, leading to number fourteen-ranked Curtis stepping up on short notice. 

Curtis and Allen previously fought in 2021, with the former securing a second-round knockout win. This time around, the middleweights exceeded their expectations by showcasing a five-round war before ‘All In’ avenged his previous loss by emerging victorious by split decision

In round five, Curtis was visibly in significant pain, as he seemed to injure one of his legs. Once the fight concluded, MMA reporter Alex Behunin confirmed ‘The Action Man’ was injured by saying this on Twitter: 

“Chris Curtis’ manager, Lance Spaude tells me he tore his hamstring   He injured it in the second round and severely aggravated it in the final round”

Chris Curtis had a massive opportunity to skyrocket his spot in the UFC middleweight rankings and arguably deserved to have his hand raised. Following the disappointing result, ‘The Action Man’ took to Instagram and reflected on the loss by saying: 

“Not the result we wanted, but it is what it is. I thought we had it, but congrats to @b_allen185. Love you brotha and enjoy the night. But remember, it’s 1-1, you owe me the trilogy lol. Rest up and enjoy your family. Thank you all for the support, and I’m sorry. I felt good, I was ready, maybe I’m just getting to old for this shit. Lol time will tell. Until next time guys.”

Curtis continued by confirming he tore his hamstring: 

“Edit: btw guys, it looks like I tore my hamstring. Popped it in round 2 and we think it tore in round 5 at the end. We’ll find out on Monday after we get some scans. Thank you guys for the concern.”

Chris Curtis will return to the drawing board and attempt to bounce back after recovering from his hamstring injury. At 36 years old, ‘The Action Man’ is running out of time to shock the world by becoming the UFC middleweight champion.
