Anderson Silva Injury: Breaks Leg Against Chris Weidman, Apparently Broke Ankle in Half in UFC 168

Anderson Silva Injury: Breaks Leg Against Chris Weidman, Apparently Broke Ankle in Half in UFC 168 Anderson Silva, the longtime former UFC Middleweight champion, lost against champion Chris Weidman on Saturday night during UFC 168. He appeared to fracture his ankle in half. Silva went in for a kick during the second round but then immediately collapsed on the ground in agony holding his leg. Silva’s leg kick was checked by what appeared to be Weidman’s knee and it fractured. The ankle noticeably bent in half when it struck. With the injury, Weidman retains the Middlewelt belt. UFC commentator Joe Rogan speculated that the leg break would spell the end of Silva’s career. Silva, 38, had the longest UFC title reign in the organization’s history before he lost to Weidman earlier this year. He carried out 10 consecutive title defenses and won 16 consecutive times. Several websites got different angles of the Silva injury (WARNING – GRAPHIC):
