Video: Fans react to Anderson Silva’s leg break


Fans and fighters witnessed as Anderson “The Spider” Silva broke his leg in the second round of  his middleweight title match against champion Chris Weidman at UFC 168.

Below is a video featuring a collection of fans reactions, along with a short snippet of the Team Rousey reaction video. Again it was an unfortunate accident that happened to The Spider during the fight.

Seeing fans and fighters react like this remind me of the reactions from television fans when they viewed the Red Wedding on “Game of Thrones,” in early 2013.

Again this is an unfortunate occurrence for Silva; however he underwent a successful surgery and is expected to make a recovery within six months.
