Former champ Anderson Silva obviously knows the MMA world is concerned for him, so he keeps updating us with pics of his progress. This time “The Spider” posted a photo on his Instagram, depicting what is clearly a physical therapy session. The caption is in Portuguese, but as per Google Translate, it reads: “Thank you for the affection of all, I’ll be good I promise you I will ..”
Silva fractured both is tibia and fibula in his attempt to reclaim the belt from Chris Weidman at UFC 168 on December 28, 2013. It’s a good sign – and surely a testament of his will and determination – that the legendary Brazilian fighter is already undergoing physical therapy so soon after such a traumatic injury.
