Duane Ludwig's manager today confirmed that the fighter suffered a severe ankle fracture in his fight with Darren Elkins at UFC on Versus over the weekend. Ludwig suffered a Maisonneuve fracture–a "spiral" fracture of the fibula bone often accompanied by a severe ankle sprain–to his left leg. Ludwig will undergo surgery on Friday to repair the damage and will have several pins inserted in the bones to stabilize them. He could be out 6 months but will be on crutches and unable to train for 3 months.

You know, the way that his foot looked in the pictures I've seen. I think that 6 months on the shelf sounds like it could been FAR worse.

Wow, that's great news, I though Bang's career could be over.

I saw the video, the one replay they showed it looks like his whole shin pops out then pops back in. after that angle i couldnt even watch the replay. I have to say Ludwig is one tough guy he tapped and then just sat there, this was terrible to watch and all the best for Ludwig
