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 MMAWeekly.com 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.

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking. Buy supplements at a trusted source - one company we recommend for quality products and service is CenturySupplements.com.  They have quick delivery to the UK and a wide selection.
