Anderson Silva hits the bag and plays soccer



Anderson Silva continues to post his recovery milestones on social media to share with his fans around the world. The former longtime Middleweight champion is currently rehabbing the broken leg he suffered during his UFC 168 Middleweight title rematch against Chris Weidman. Silva has been making some unbelievable achievements in a short span during his recovery. Today, Silva provides us with another two videos of him hitting the bag and kicking a soccer ball.

Here is the soccer video that he posted earlier today:

Along with the video Silva had this message in Portuguese:
A little more pain goes.

Here is the video of Anderson hitting the bag:

Along with the video Silva had this message in Portuguese:
Who wants to win he must learn to fight, persevere and never give up even more suffering to achieve their goals in life.

Each day Silva makes new milestones, he becomes one step close to the Octagon. Throughout this process Silva has been adamant about returning to championship form and fighting once again inside the UFC. Of course, there is still a long road ahead of recovery for ‘The Spider’.

If Silva ultimately decides to retire following the injury, he will always be remembered as the greatest UFC champion in history, and arguably the greatest fighter in the history of MMA.

    I’d be rooting for Silva if he wasn’t such a tool. As a person he doesn’t deserve the skills he was given. His lack of class is at the heart of why he’s not the “best ever” and has lost his last two fights so completely and was shown to be very beatable in previous bouts. If you want to look at true excellence and sportsmanship, and who is the “best ever”, look no further than Fedor Emelianenko.

    Spider is an appropriate name for Silva, in more ways than one.
