From UFC on Versus:

Severe break. More should be known after he sees a specialist today.

Agreed. Personally, I would much rather have a nasty cut like Sanchez' or Torres and still be able to walk than have my foot facing the other way.

No doubt. You could split me open like a ripe melon if I get to keep my foot in it's proper position.

i have a 7 inch steel plate with 8 screws in my right ankle, and after looking at this, my ankle is ******* throbbing, he will def most likely have surgery and have a plate put in his ankle

That might be the end of his career as a top level fighter, I would be surprised to see him back in the UFC.

That is most likely a career ending injury for Bang. This card was hyped to be the biggest free fight night and IMO it delievered 100%. The last time I remember a card being this good with pretty much all knockouts and fights being finished was, crazy enough, Fight Night Fight for the Troops. Corey Hill snapped his leg horribly on that card.

how is this a career ending injury? unless he has tore some ligaments or muscles, just the break alone isnt career ending, like i stated above i broke my ankle, completely in half only muscle holding the foot to the leg, happened about 3 years ago and my ankle is fine, was fine before the first year was up

It is most likely a career ending injury for Ludwig because he is pretty much irrelavant in that division and now he has to recover from this horrific injury. Im not bashing Ludwig at all, I'm just saying hes not a top guy so coming back from this and being competitive in the UFC is going to be very very hard.

I sprained my ankle real bad in high school and the doctor at the ER told me breaks heal better than severe sprained. He wanted to break it and reset it. I couldn't see his logic behind it, so I told him to f*ck off.

10 years later, my ankle pops like crazy when I walk. Don't know if has anything do to with it or not.

For Ludwigs sake, I hope the doc was right and his ankle heal just fine.

so... he can go fight for SF or Dream, getting cut from the UFC is not career ending, how many fighters have been cut and made it back??

Damn thats bad!! To bad for Bang. Such a game fighter. Not the next champ but has proved throughout his career that he'll fight anyone anywhere. He'll have a long road back to the octagon. Hopfully the UFC doesn't cut him due to this!
