Former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva suffered a horrific leg injury during a rematch against Chris Weidman. Silva opened up about his injury on the Brazilian network Rede Globo, confessing that he remembers how he was injured and thinks about it all the time.
Silva suffered a strike from Weidman that caused a nasty fracture in his leg, and has been trying to figure out where he made his mistakes during the fight. As far as Silva’s condition goes, he says “I’m improving. I’m not going 100 percent, but I’m already taking little steps with a crutch. It’s a pain I do not wish on anyone. Since I came from Las Vegas, I left the hospital. I can’t sleep all night. It’s very difficult.” Silva describes the toughest aspect of his injury as being home with his wife and children, who often hear the Brazilian fighter’s cries of pain.
