Anderson Silva Tweets Pic of Himself and Family

When last we saw Anderson Silva, the former UFC middleweight champ was being carted out of the Octagon on a stretcher, screaming in absolute pain with a splint on his shattered shin. But four days removed from his horrifying UFC 168 experience – an experience that included a failed bid to reclaim his belt after champ Chris Weidman checked a kick and inadvertently broke his leg – Silva tweeted a pic of himself on crutches, smiling and with family.

There is, of course, no word if Silva ever intends to return to the Octagon – nor should there be. All that matters at this point is that the Brazilian legend has a speedy and healthy recovery. And judging from his characteristic grin in his pic, it seems that recovery is already underway.
