Video: Anderson Silva throws first leg kick on surgically-repaired limb

Wait for it ... BOOM! And it's still in one piece! True, he's kicking the shit out of one of those rubber yoga balls, but just the idea of throwing a leg kick after such a grisly injury -- something Anderson Silva tells UOL Esporte was like the birth of his first son -- is pretty impressive. Heck, it's still less than three months since "The Spider" snapped his leg at UFC 168 and he's already grappling, running on the treadmill and hitting the mitts. Good news for Silva, bad news for complacent middleweights.
