Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC Middleweight kingpin Anderson Silva has been cleared to resume training after having spent months on the sidelines through surgery.
Ed Soares, his long time friend and manager confirmed the news saying that he has been in contact with the UFC and they are waiting to see what the promotion comes up with.
For those who follow the Brazilian on the social media platforms will know this news comes as a mere change of designation of the former UFC Middleweight champion. The Spider had already begun training in boxing, lifting weights, grappling on the floor as well as several other components with famous boxing trainer Freddie Roach.
The recover schedule of Anderson Silva is way ahead of schedule after he suffered a nasty leg break while attempting to regain his UFC Middleweight Championship in a rematch against Chris Weidman last December at UFC 168.
But the timing of his return is still up in smoke and Soares couldn’t say anything concrete about when his friend can return to the cage.
Dana White, the president of the UFC also echoed the voice of Soares when he said that he cannot be sure about when the Brazilian can return to the cage. White also mentioned that he might be able to return before the year is out or at the very beginning of the New Year. He could be in the last fight of the year or the first fight of next year.
Soares also didn’t mention who Anderson Silva would be fighting when he marks his return to the cage. However, he did say that the Spider won’t let go of another chance to fight for the UFC Middleweight Championship.
But what the future holds is still unknown for the future UFC Middleweight Hall of Famer.
