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 UFCs 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 Silvas left leg was badly broken. The fight was the main event of UFC 168 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Following Silvas surgery, the UFC issued a statement announcing UFC orthopedic surgeon Dr. Steven Sanders had repaired Silvas 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 evenings 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 UFCs orthopedic surgeon, inserted an intramedullary rod into Andersons 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 Silvas 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. Hes one of the greatest of all time, if not the best ever. Its a s–tty way to see him go out, but its 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 hadnt planned on.
