A smiling Anderson Silva back on his feet
Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva broke his leg when Chris Weidman checked a low kick at UFC 168 on Saturday night. The break was so bad many fans assumed this was the end of his career.
However, his surgeon says he can start light training in three to six months, and that there is every expectation he can fight again, should be choose to.
And he is already back on his feet, albeit aided by crutches.
