When we first saw Anderson Silva break his leg in his fight with Chris Weidman at UFC 168, many, including yours truly, thought that was the last we would see of the “Spider” in the competitive arena.
UFC president Dana White revealed in a video blog that the former UFC middleweight champion could be back by the end of 2014.
“What’s crazy about that injury is he will be walking without crutches in a few weeks, he will be training in less than six months, and he will be fighting by the end of the year,” White said on Monday’s edition of SportsNation on ESPN2. “So if you blow your ACL out, you’re out for a year and three months. You break your leg in half; you’re back before the end of the year.”
