    He's gonna gain plenty of jack headlining the first UFC PPV event at Wembley Stadium.

    Noway, Rashad would get knocked out or submitted. He would play right into Anderson's strengths.

    Or Rashad would grind Anderson against the mat.

    Surgeon: It could be up to a year before Anderson Silva can throw another leg kick
    Dr. Steven Sanders, the man who performed the surgery that included inserting a titanium rod into Silva's Tibia, was a guest on SiriusXM Tapout Radio recently, and he explained to hosts Ricky Bones and Punkass the level of pain in question.

    "I can share with you from my experience of being an orthopedic surgeon and frequently taking care of fractures, that a broken leg at that level is extremely painful. We have a lot of nerve endings that run along the bone in that area. The tibia -- our leg bone -- is sort of exposed, if you will, just under the skin in the front of our leg. So, it's a very sensitive area, as anyone knows if they have bumped their shin against something. Fracturing it is going to be a quantum leap in terms of increase in pain. It's a very painful injury and then, of course, there is the shock effect as well."

    The doctor also explained why both broken bones were addressed during the same surgery, and how the fibula (the smaller of the two bones) sometimes has to be treated separately. In the case of Silva's leg, he felt it was better for the overall healing process to tackle both bones in one surgery.

    There were several factors in performing the surgery, where I felt it was in Anderson's best interest, not to be addressing the fibula separately," Sanders explained. "There is certainly a chance that it can heal on it's own, so that, of course, gives him the benefit of the doubt. That also would've meant making an incision where the fracture occurred on the other bone, and I felt that would have had a negative effect on the biology, the early biology of healing. There were a couple of strategic reasons not to fix the fibula at this time. If it turns out that the fibula, the smaller bone, is the problem, than certainly that can be addressed down the road with a minor, almost outpatient operation."

    Even though most of the early prognostications of when Silva can return to his training regimen are six to nine months, Sanders said it could actually be up to a year before the 38-year-old fighter can begin to throw leg strikes again.

    "From a pure physical perspective of the bone, optimistically, yes we would like to see his bones heal over a three to nine month period of time. Then, you of course have the soft tissues around the bone, and that is obviously going to remain a sensitive area. So I guess there are gradations of what his activity will be and he will be dictating a lot of that to us as the next following months unfold. I would not have anyone with that injury -- regardless of the patient -- no one would be involved in a striking type, or high contact sport to that area, easily could be anywhere from six to 12 months."

    While Silva isn't getting any younger, and will for all intents and purposes be 40 years of age when he makes his Octagon return, Sanders explained that age "is not a factor in terms of delaying or working against his healing."

    As to whether or not he thinks Silva can return to form and be as dangerous as he once was, Sanders declined to comment saying, "that is not something I can opine on."

    Pettis: I hope Silva doesn't come back
    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...snt-come-back/
    Anderson Silva's camp has already reported that the former UFC champion would like to fight again after he recovers from his broken leg. One person who would rather not see him come back is UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis:

    "I hope he doesn’t [come back] because why?" Pettis told Yahoo Sports Tuesday night at a Monster headphones event as part of the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show. "His legacy is already fulfilled. What’s he going to come back and win the belt? He’s done what he’s going to do in the sport."

    While he wasn't cageside at UFC 168 for Weidman vs. Silva 2, Pettis was watching the fight as it happened live from his Milwaukee sports bar.

    "I couldn’t even watch it," Pettis added. "It was disgusting. It sucks because he’s one of the greatest of all-time. He’s the Muhammad Ali of MMA and the way he went out sucks."

    Is Adamantium a thing yet? Can they load his leg up with some of that?

    seriously, rattan is the way to go. it's an organic reed, kind of like wicker. They have a process--only done in animals thus far: they shape the rattan into the form of the they want, then they load it with calcium and bake it under pressure. the end result is stronger than bone, grafts easily, and the porous nature allows blood vessels to grow through it, minimizing rejection. between that and advancements in 3D printing with human cartilage, he should be all set well into his 50s.

    Interesting. Not as cool as Adamantium, but I guess thats as good as we're going to get. Is it from a particular reed from a certain area?
