Anderson Silva (33-6) suffered a gruesome injury during Saturday night’s bout against Chris Weidman (11-0). The 38-year-old former champ broke his left leg on a kick that was blocked by Weidman’s shin in the second round of UFC 168′s main event.

Silva was stretchered out of the ring, and underwent successful surgery shortly after the injury. It’ll reportedly take 3-6 months to recover.

The injury gave Weidman, who was defending the UFC middleweight title for the first time since knocking Silva out on July 6, a second-round TKO (injury) victory.

Weidman will likely face No. 1 middleweight contender Vitor Belfort in his next bout, while Silva will have to determine whether or not he wants to return to the ring after a very long and successful career.
