There's no way fans already forgot the sight of UFC great Anderson Silva's leg snapping on impact in his loss last night against Chris Weidman. As mentioned during the broadcast, it's difficult to get back to even walking after an injury like that. There's no word if he's calling it quits, but the good news is the surgery he underwent immediately after the fight was a success. The former champion's expected recovery time is 3-6 months.
