Anderson's got the money for top medical care in modern day and he can pay people to do his grocery shopping etc. and focus on recovery just like GSP got top treatment for his injury so who knows.

That look horrible. Hope that he recovers fast and it heals up completely.

Is it possible for his leg to recover completely from something like that? 6, 8 or however many months it takes. It looked really bad.

He should just retire. No need to test his luck and maybe get in situation where someone will kick that leg and break it again

It would be great to see Anderson go out on a win.

That leg can get stronger than it was before.
The question is will it mind get over this injury.

He won't fight machida or Souza

Already finished Belfort.


Pretty sure he wants that RJJ fight Weidman in tht time will probably fight vitor, Souza and machida/Gerard winner. Do people see Weidman winning all of them?

I would hope so Dana is the one that told him to go out there and break a leg

Yeah and I did the rehab etc. So weak when your doing it. For me, it was the tissue damage that took forever. After 6 months I could walk fine etc but it didn't feel 100% for about 5 years and I worked out in gym...ran...leg workouts etc....I'd say after 6 months it was functional, but it was always sore and tender. I'd say it's about 90% healed now. lol.
