MMA after ACL tear
About a year ago I tore my ACL in jiu-jitsu class, since then I have not really done much of anything as far as training. I still go to lift weights and run but that has been it. Anyone else had experience going back to MMA after a ACL surgery? My main thing is my knee feels different and I am not sure if it is weaker or just the way it is going to feel. I have a good size breg brace, Y2K I think, but I really think it is to big to fight in. I have also quit using it all together for my normal workouts sometime ago. Anyone have a recomendation for a good smaller brace just to fight in?

What surgery did you have?
You'll find threads on ACL injuries if you search for knee, ligament, injury, rupture, stuff like that
After my ACL, PCL, MCL and meniscus all got torn it took me 1 year to fully rehab the knee. I still have problems with it but lately I found that if I keep my hip flexors strong by doing adductor, and abductor exercises my knee stabalizes better. Hope that helps....oh and stretch the thigh a lot.
