Anderson Silva Gets Medical Clearance To Return To Sparring

June 20, 2014 2:43 pm by BJPENN.COM News

After publicly breaking his leg in the UFC 168 main event last year, former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has been spending the bulk of the last six-months in rehab.

And while there are likely several hurdles left yet to go through, Silva’s medical team in Brazil has just cleared him to begin sparring again.

Silva himself took to twitter with the news:

Translated:“Good news today, guys. Dr. Marcio Tannure released me for my first sparring after my leg fracture.”
