Less than two months after his horrific leg break at UFC 168, Anderson Silva has posted a video on Instagram of him walking down a flight of stairs unaided.
Admittedly he’s still moving very tentatively at this stage, but it’s just great to see him back on his feet and getting underway on what’s likely to be a long road to recovery.
Silva was also pictured training at his own Muay Thai college in California this week, appearing to be lifting light weights, more than likely in an attempt to maintain his upper body strength while his leg continues to heal.
In a recent interview Dana White had suggested that it’s even possible that Silva may fight again before the end of the year, though some, including UFC color commentator Joe Rogan, fear that the former middleweight champion may try to come back too soon.
Regardless of when he does decide to return there’s no guarantee at this stage that it would be in the Octagon as Silva has indicated that he’s still eager to fulfull a long time dream to fight boxing star Roy Jones Jr.
