New, 27 comments

UFC held a conference call earlier today with Dr. Steven Sanders, the orthopedic surgeon who performed emergency surgery on the broken leg of former Middleweight champion Anderson Silva, who shattered his shin bone kicking Chris Weidman in the UFC 168 main event this past weekend (watch full fight highlights here). Sanders discussed the delicate operation, the severity of the injury (it was bad, but could have been worse), the former champion's possible return to training (6 to 9 months), and much more in the audio player above.
