In the first round of his rematch with Primetime, the All Americans broke his right tibia.
Following a flawless leg check from Hall, Weidman's shin snapped in half.
To make matters worse, the former UFC champion attempted to walk on his leg after it had fractured, oblivious to the extent of the injury.
The 36-year-swollen old's leg gave way, and he fell to the canvas in pain, accompanied by stomach-churning scenes.
The injury occurred during Weidman's match against Uriah Hall in front of a star-studded crowd of 15,000 or more in what The Associated Press described as the first test of full-capacity indoor sports since Florida Governor Ron DeSantis lifted the state's limit last September.
Medical personnel rushed to Weidman's assistance, placing an air cast on his leg and carrying him out on a stretcher. According to the Associated Press, he was expected to have surgery on Sunday.
As he watched the scene and offered words of comfort, Hall seemed upset.
"I have nothing but admiration for Weidman," Hall said. "He is without a doubt one of the brightest.... It's the sport's most unpleasant aspect. It's a losing proposition."
