Anderson Silva Says He Still Suffers From Memories Of Injury

Former UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva spoke this week about how he is still haunted by the memories of his horrific leg injury as well as revealing he’s been working with a psychologist to get over his demons.

Silva, speaking via Fantastico said this:

“I feel no pain at all. My strength is back because I’m back to training. The hardest part is self-confidence, to kick again as I used to. I’ve worked with a psychologist so I can get rid of the ghosts of those horrible moments of that fight, when I had that accident. I’m a little apprehensive in training. I know I can execute the movement, but I end up not doing it for fear.”

“Yeah, I won’t get hurt. I know I won’t get hurt, but fear is natural. I don’t want to feel that pain ever again. No way. I feel better training in Brazil. And, so I can be at my 100 percent to return to fighting, I’d rather train in Brazil.”
