Back at UFC 168 Anderson Silva suffered one of the most gruesome injuries in recent history. The injury came when Silva threw a leg kick that was checked and made contact with the knee of his opponent Chris Weidman resulting in Anderson breaking his leg. A lot of fans including myself speculated whether Silva at 38 years of age would be able to make a comeback to the sport at all. Silva though has been very adamant about his return to the UFC in conversations with Dana White and in a true testament to his will to compete, Silva sent out the following picture:
Silva has also apparently told Dana White that he is determined to fight again before the end of the year. While how his leg reacts to full on training remains to be seen, nobody can question the determination of Silva as he makes such huge strides just six weeks following his injury. Regardless of whether or not he is able to make a full return to fighting, his place as one of the greatest fighters in the history of the UFC has already been cemented.
