Some of you may be tired of the constant updates that document former UFC championAnderson Silva‘s recovery from a broken leg. For the rest of you, check out his latest progress.
In his newest update, Silva (33-6 MMA, 16-2 UFC), who snapped his leg in a UFC title loss to Chris Weidman (11-0 MMA, 7-0 UFC) on Dec. 28, posted a video of him throwing kicks with the surgically repaired limb. The kicks come just 10 weeks after the gruesome injury.
Silva, one of the greatest fighters in MMA history, included a message, which roughly translates to: “Always believe you can. Everyone have a good week.”
Sure, there’s a big difference between kicking inflatable balls and kicking ass, but it’s continued, steady progress for “The Spider.”
Although the recent injury prompted speculation about the veteran middleweight’s potential retirement, both he and UFC President Dana White have assured he’ll return to the cage. In fact, this past month, White said the 38-year-old could be back in the octagon by the end of the year.
