On Saturday night we witnessed one of the most gruesome injuries in MMA history.
And it happened to a legend.
In his bid to regain his UFC middleweight title, Anderson Silva, fell in the second round when he broke his leg during a checked leg kick.
The man considered to be the greatest fighter of all time was rushed to the hospital after the fight for emergency surgery and now the world waits to see if Silva will attempt to return to MMA.
Shocked, the MMA world took to twitter with their reaction.
