Anderson Silva Rushed to Hospital for Emergency Surgery

December 28, 2013 11:41 pm by BJPENN.COM News

Despite suffering a vicious loss against Chris Weidman at UFC 162, Anderson Silva still walked into the octagon as a favorite and was riding a wave of momentum as the crowd cheered him on from the opening seconds.

“The Spider” lost all of that momentum almost immediately when Weidman dropped him in the first with a right hook that landed behind the ear. Weidman capitalized on his ground and pound but Anderson Silva made it to the second round.

Weidman admitted that the only time he felt like Silva had the upperhand at UFC 162 was when he would connect with his distance leg kicks. To improve on his leg kick defense, he brought in world-class kickboxer Ray Sefo.

Tonight, Silva attempted to resume his gameplan by throwing leg kicks, but that’s where things went wrong for him.

Chris Weidman checked Anderson Silva’s leg kick and Silva’s leg broke in half. His shin broke and bent around the leg of Weidman and it was a gruesome image. The records say that the bout ended due to doctor stoppage but Silva let out a scream of pain that nobody in attendance is likely to forget.
After the bout, Anderson Silva was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery.
