Duane Ludwig to undergo surgery on badly broken ankle, likely to be out for six months

March 23, 2010 All MMA News, UFC

UFC lightweight veteran, Duane Ludwig is set to undergo surgery on Friday to repair his badly broken ankle sustained on the UFC on Versus card in Broomfield, Colorado this past Sunday night, an injury which is likely to keep him sidelined for six months.

The news was confirmed today to by Ludwig’s manger, Sven Bean, who explained that three pins will need to be inserted to brace the ankle. One pin will be removed after the healing process has taken effect, leaving two permanent pins in his ankle.

Speaking to the same new site, Ludwig himself said:

“I look at this as just another challenge I have to face. I’ll be back before everybody expects. I’m going to be back.”

Ludwig returned to the octagon in January only to lose via first round submission to Jim Miller. His fight with Darren Elkins this past Sunday was the second on his current contract; let’s hope it’s not his last.
