White: Silva will be walking without crutches in 30 days

 

UFC president Dana White visited former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva on Friday, and it looks like he’s recovering well, as expected.

Silva suffered a fracture of both his tibia and fibula when champion Chris Weidman checked one of the Spider’s kicks in their Dec. 28 main event bout at UFC 168 in Las Vegas. Silva was immediately rushed to the hospital for surgery, where he had a rod inserted below his knee cap that runs the length of his tibia.

After visiting with Silva, White tweeted the above pictures, noting that Silva is expected to be walking without crutches in 30 days.

People need to slow down.. He won't even be able to throw a full power kick for a year.

Good for him! Don't come back unless you want to, your health is more important than the UFC.

Great to see he's making a speedy recovery. With that said I really hope he doesn't continue fighting. Granted it would have been nice to see him go out on a better note but he has nothing left to prove and I'd hate to see him be one of those guys that took unnecessary punishment because they didn't know when to retire.
