Despite recent reports alleging that Anderson Silva was out for the remainder of the year due to an elbow injury, the UFC middleweight champion recently told Fighters Only that he is “200 percent healthy and there’s no injury.”
“I don’t know anything at all about any elbow injury,” he said. “I wonder who hurt me?”
Silva says he is looking forward to getting back in the octagon following his high profile victory over Forrest Griffin at UFC 101. Silva says he hopes to fight former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir next.
“I’m 200 percent healthy and there’s no injury. UFC can set the next fight whenever they want, I’m ready. I’m interested in fighting Frank Mir. He can be the next one,” he concluded.
