In a recent interview, ‘The Notorious’ provided fans an update on his leg break. He said, “You know, I feel like I could kick right now. I honestly feel like I could kick right now. But I just got to listen to the doctors, listen to the people that are guiding me…When I left my son, I was jumping 360 flips and the next time he sees me I am in the seat and can’t walk.” 

‘The Notorious’ continued, “That was playing on me a bit. But as the weeks go by, I am getting better and stronger….. He can see the work I have put in and he can see the reward and I know that is going to rub off well on him…. I was upset for a while. It has not been easy, it’s probably one of the wildest things that has ever happened to me. It has not been full smooth sailing, but I have gotten through it.”
