Watch Anderson Silva throw the first kicks with his newly-reassembled leg

Watch Anderson Silva throw the first kicks with his newly-reassembled leg

After his robbery at Glory this weekend against Remy Bonjasky, Cro Cop stated that Anderson Silva will never be the same after he broke his leg. He echoes the sentiments of a lot of MMA fans that insist Silva should just call it quits and rest on the laurels of being the greatest MMA fighter UFC has ever witnessed. Instead, Anderson Silva has been vigorously training to get back in the cage in order to set an example for the kids -- at least that's my only reasonable conclusion to Silva rehabilitating his entire MMA career. Nevertheless, Anderson Silva doesn't operate on what MMA fans want -- the dude is simply above that spectrum of society.

Judging by this video it's pretty clear and concise that Anderson Silva will return to the Octagon and he will not hold back on the number of leg kicks he throws against his opponent. Check out this video from Brazil's UOL of The Spider kicking a over-sized bouncy ball with exponentially increasing force.

If he does get back in the cage, I'm gonna be wincing every time he throws a kick.

Come on dude. Rewind exactly 2 months from today. What were your thoughts then regarding not only his career but his overall capabilities? Are you going to tell me, the moment the accident happened, you were telling yourself, "no big deal, he will be throwing text-book kicks again in 2 months time". Somehow I highly doubt that. People were talking about him like he was dead.

Yes, he is kicking a yoga ball. But look at his hip movement. Look at the pressure behind the kicks. Just last week Zeus posted an article talking about how depressing it was watching him walk/kick a soccer ball. He took his first steps not even 3 weeks ago. I don't think you are observing the situation very objectively. It's been 2 months, and look at the day-to-day progress. Seriously, some people can be so spiteful for absolutely no reason. Give credit where credit is due man. This is amazing.

BTW, props on the Krang avi.
