The answer to this question is pretty easy if you put yourself into the position of, say, Dana White or Lorenzo, and then ask yourself, "what's better for business, telling the fans that Anderson Silva career is done, or telling them that Silva will come back to fight 'soon'?"

Jesus Christ.
Someone can be highly competent in what they're doing (such as this doctor's skills in orthopedic surgery), but they can also be biased as well (or pressured into saying things they don't want), due to the interests involved.

Being competent and being unbiased are two different things.

I broke my leg the same way silva did in my second fight, dude checked it…tib and fib were ripped in half, dr's said I would never compete/fight again.


Dr's are so fucking wrong sometimes, I was kicking heavy bags at 80% 3ish months after the break. I now have a metal leg that I use to check every single kick coming at me, its an advantage.

Not seeing it. He either comes back or he doesn't. Not sure how anticipating his return is going to make such a big difference. Keep people checking in to see when he's going to return?

Just don't see the big difference. He didn't say Silva WOULD return, just said it's possible. Are there other credible medical folks refuting that, or just sherdoggers?
