Anderson Silva Tweets Grappling Photo 6 Weeks After Broken Leg


Anderson Silva Broken Leg

Anderson Silva’s leg injury looked gruesome the night it occurred but broken bones heal much better than torn ligaments.

Silva is the prime example of how fast a world class athlete can bounce back from a devastating injury. Silva broke both bones in his lower leg in late-December and he is already grappling in a gym in Brazil.


The two Portuguese words in the tweet read,  “Estou voltando” (“I’m coming back). Any MMA fans that expected a Silva retirement after that last fight have now had their questions answered. Silva will be back and if he’s fighting someone other than Chris Weidman I’d bet on him coming back with a win.
