Reports Claims Anderson Silva Is Out Of The Hospital

According to sources, former UFC middleweight champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva was released from hospital on Sunday evening, this after undergoing a successful surgery, to repair a broken bone in his left leg.

According to one of Silva’s managers, Jorge Guimaraes, Anderson was transferred to a Las Vegas hotel Sunday evening where he is expected to stay “a day or two.” The former UFC champion will then return to his home in Los Angeles, as he told Ariel Helwani:

Silva’s manager said this when asked how “The Spider” was doing:

“He’s fine,Just sad and in pain.”

The UFC also released a statement regarding Silvas injuries:

“The successful surgery, performed by Dr. Steven Sanders, the UFC’s orthopedic surgeon, inserted an intramedullary rod into Anderson’s left tibia, the broken fibula was stabilized and does not require a separate surgery.”

Guimaraes also said it is too early at this time to speculate what will happen in Silva’s fighting future.

Anderson Silva tweeted this message to his fans on Sunday morning:

“Brasil, I’m sorry, I didn’t want to let you down. I gave my best, I swear.”
