Weidman is able to take a couple steps, though he seems to ease up near the end of the video. If Weidman was discouraged by that, it doesn't come across in the text of the post, where Weidman wrote, "We are moving!!"

Chris Weidman stretchered off at UFC 261

Weidman experienced the injury just 17 seconds into his fight against Uriah Hall at UFC 261. Weidman used his right leg to kick Hall in the shin. Weidman's bone shattered upon impact, and Weidman had to be taken away from the cage on a stretcher. 

A few days after the injury, Weidman's wife, Marivi, posted an update saying Weidman's surgery went well

Following the fight, Hall said he owed Weidman a rematch once he got healthy. Weidman took his first steps — literally — Thursday toward making that rematch a reality.
