メーンのミドル級タイトルマッチ5分5回は、同級王者クリス・ワイドマン(29=米国)が、挑戦者の前王者アンデウソン・シウバ(38=ブラジル)の負傷によるTKO勝利を飾った。 

今年7月の王座奪取からダイレクトでシウバとの再戦となったワイドマンは1回にテークダウンを奪って先行。立ち状態に戻って組み技の攻防から右フックでダウンを奪うと、そのまま上から拳を振り下ろした。そして2回、ワイドマンは左ローキックを左ヒザに浴びたが、キックしたはずのシウバが悲鳴を上げて後方に倒れ込んだ。激痛の信号を感じ取ったレフェリーは試合をストップ。2回1分16秒、TKOで初防衛成功。

今年最後となるUFCのビッグマッチは意外な幕切れとなった。

Anderson Silva remains in hospital after successful surgery on broken leg

LAS VEGAS – Anderson Silva remains in a Las Vegas hospital following successful surgery to repair a broken leg he suffered trying to regain the UFC’s middleweight title.

Silva (33-6 MMA, 16-2 UFC) on Saturday threw a kick that was checked by champion Chris Weidman (11-0 MMA, 7-0 UFC), and in the process Silva’s left leg was badly broken. The fight was the main event of UFC 168 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Following Silva’s surgery, the UFC issued a statement announcing UFC orthopedic surgeon Dr. Steven Sanders had repaired Silva’s broken left tibia as well as stabilized his broken left fibula. The UFC estimated his recovery time to be as long as six months.

“Following Saturday evening’s UFC 168 main event, former champion Anderson Silva was taken to a local Las Vegas hospital where he underwent surgery to repair a broken left leg. The successful surgery, performed by Dr. Steven Sanders, the UFC’s orthopedic surgeon, inserted an intramedullary rod into Anderson’s left tibia. The broken fibula was stabilized and does not require a separate surgery. Anderson will remain in the hospital for a short while, but no additional surgery is scheduled at this time. Recovery time for such injuries may vary between three and six months. Anderson is deeply touched by the outpouring of support from his fans and the entire MMA community. There has been no immediate decision about his future, and he would kindly ask for privacy at this time as he deals with his injury and prepares to return home to recover.”
After a dominant first round for Weidman, who took Silva’s belt in a stunning knockout at UFC 162 in July, he checked a Silva low kick in the second – leading to one of the most gruesome injuries in MMA history.

Silva immediately collapsed to the canvas, yelling out in pain as referee Herb Dean waved the fight off.

“Anderson Silva has been amazing,” UFC President Dana White said at the UFC 168 post-event news conference. “He’s one of the greatest of all time, if not the best ever. It’s a s–tty way to see him go out, but it’s part of the game.”

Of course, time will tell if Silva returns from the injury, or if the fight was effectively a retirement bout that he hadn’t planned on.
