Veteran fighter Duane "Bang" Ludwig hit the bag today for the first time since he suffered a grisly broken leg in a first-round loss to fellow lightweight Darren Elkins at UFC on Versus 1.

Ludwig (19-11 MMA, 2-2 UFC) said his doctors recently cleared him to begin physical therapy and light training after removing a screw from his left fibula, which broke when Elkins took him down in the first round of the March 31 fight.

With his bone now "healed," the UFC fighter says a move to welterweight is imminent.

Ah yes, the biannual move to welterweight announcement by Bang. I hope this time he decides to stick to 170. He's looked much more effective there and fighting smaller men at 155 has never helped his ground game anyway.

I hope he can do something at welterweight, I've been a fan of his since his King of the Cage days and it's been really frustrating to see his lack of substantial improvement on the ground.
