Dana White on Anderson Silva: ‘he wants to come back’

January 8, 2014 6:12 am by Ryan C. Miller

During a recent appearance on ESPN, UFC president Dana White announced the news that Dominick Cruz had been injured and would be vacating his Bantamweight title.

Along with that announcement White was also asked about former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva’s leg injury and his recovery.

White had this to say about Silva’s injury and his future in the octagon:

“Anderson Silva is healing very well. This week they put a boot cast on him. He’s walking around with crutches and a boot cast. And crazy enough, a ACL tear in the knee puts you out longer than what happened to Anderson Silva. Anderson will be back in six months, back meaning he will be able to be on his foot again and be able to train. I’m going to visit him this week, but everything I hear, he is doing great and he wants to come back.”

Is this great news for all of you fans, or would you like to see Silva call it quits?
