Anderson Silva Thought He Cracked Surgically Repaired Leg at Fight Night 84

Anderson Silva thought that he cracked his surgically repaired leg at UFC Fight Night 84. Silva’s coach Luiz Dorea told MMAFighting that during the first round of his bout with Michael Bisping, Silva threw a leg kick and a screw in his leg shifted places.

“He felt a kick he landed in the first round, thought he cracked his leg and a screw moved,” Dorea said. “That limited his movements, made him stop attacking for a moment. I asked him to attack, but he said ‘professor, I’m feeling it, I have no confidence’.

Luckily for Silva, it was a false alarm. Coach Dorea continued,

“Silva did some exams after the fight. He suffered an injury, but the screw didn’t move. I don’t know how bad the injury was, but I know the screw didn’t move and he won’t need a surgery.

He was in pain in the locker room, but he won’t need surgery. He was in pain, he couldn’t even put his shoes on, but he’s fine now.”

Silva’s next fight is unknown, but he has expressed interest in fighting again at UFC 198 in Brazil.
