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.
