After former UFC Middleweight champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva broke his leg in the title match against Chris Weidman, there has been speculation on when he would return.
So it is no surprise when UFC executives Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta went to visit the former champion. According to reports, both White and Fertitta were impressed by his progress.
The Spider’s co-manager, Jorge Guimaraes, took a picture of the meeting between Silva, White and Fertita at The Spider’s house in Redondo Beach, Calif., Silva has told White that he wants to fight in the UFC again and the president said he will look at the issue in six or seven months, according to the Toronto Sun. White mentioned that he would not pressure Silva.
According to MMA Junkie, Silva begins physical therapy next week. He is set to get his stitches removed from a surgery
Silva has back-to-back losses against Weidman this past year. Still, he has accomplished a lot and does not really have anything else to prove. If he wants to retire from MMA, then he has nothing left to lose.
