Video: Anderson Silva no longer worried about his leg and would be ready to fight in UFC this year

But we're more likely to see him in 2015.

"I'm feeling well. I would be ready to fight this year. Another couple of months and I would be ready to fight again. I was a bit worried, but then I thought to myself, ‘I have been doing this since I was kid, let's go!' I'm having this opportunity to spend more time with my family to focus and work over my personal projects. I'm making the most of this moment to look after my personal things and to be with my family."

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion Anderson Silva sounds like he could make a return to the Octagon later this year if he really wanted to, but will more than likely stick with his original plan of returning in 2015. Not only is he enjoying the downtime with his friends and family, he's also training to become a police officer in Los Angeles (seriously). That's life in the fast lane for "The Spider," who isn't about to let a silly little thing like a broken leg stop him from living life as a mixed martial arts (MMA) superstar. Is normal.
