    Great news and impressive recovery. Teh Chris is still our boy!

    Also he makes me look bad. I pull a muscle in pick up soccer and I'm out for a month, and he shatters his leg and is walking assisted in two weeks.

    I'm also younger than Chris

    That is such a disturbing injury

    Every time I see him I'm scared his leg is about to snap in half

    I still think he should focus on recovering for a normal lifestyle rather than continue down a path he must know won’t end well.

    I agree I'll never understand why these fighters push so long/hard it seems like it'd be very easy for a guy like Chris to transition to running a gym/coaching.

    He'd just tell him to take a bunch of PEDs, but Chris isn't about that life

    Anderson lost every fight since he broke his leg (and certain other things came to pass), Chris would be better off doing things his own way.

    Not a doc but I’m not a fan of guys going too hard and fast so soon , which I think he is. Rest is key but guys like him are near psychotic when it comes to training .

    Hopefully he doesn't turn his comeback into some kind of a competition.

    Then we'll start hearing the word "setback", which is never good.

    I like the screen name by the way, HST is one of my favorite writers. I’ve drove by owl farm once on my way to the Woody Creek tavern.

    I feel ya haha. Also younger than Chris, had Achilles tendinitis in my right foot that kept me on crutches literally from April 1st to this week. I’m just now starting to be able to walk around without crutches. This weak glass body of mine smh.

    Best wishes to Chris but I hope he does not go back to the fight business. Even without this injury he was done a long time ago.

    Not only are you not a doc, you haven't had the unfortuanate experience of getting fucked up enough to need a doc for a joint/bone injury. The stuff he is doing is guaranteed recommended by his doctor.
