There’s no shortage of promotional materials regarding Anderson Silva these days, for understandable reasons, but a new video regarding the legend has some particularly, interesting footage.
Silva is set to return to the cage this Saturday at UFC 183, when he takes on Nick Diaz. Since the bout will mark the first time the fighter has fought since he broke his leg while fighting Chris Weidman in December, 2013, there’s a ton of buzz right now regarding Silva. Of course, the fact that he’s taking on one of the sport’s biggest names in Diaz doesn’t hurt either.
In the “Up Close and Personal” video, posted below, Silva talks about his losses to Weidman, but the vid also includes some intriguing comments from “Minotauro” Nogueira.
“Big Nog” relays that when he had his arm broke by Frank Mir back in 2011, Silva said he wasn’t sure if he, himself, could return after incurring such a severe injury. Well, as we all know now, “The Spider” has had to do just that.
UFC 183 will be hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The card will be co-headlined by a welterweight bout between contenders Tyron Woodley and Kelvin Gastelum.
