Renan Barao and Urijah Faber will fight for the title Feb. 1 in New Jersey.

Anderson Brakes Leg

Anderson Silva has a long road to recovery, 9 month minimum with this kind of injury according to Dr. Stevens, the UFC doctor who performed the surgeroy. Jorge Guimaraes, one of Silva’s managers, told TMZ that the all-time great “will be back” in the Octagon. Silva’s coach, Pedro Rizzo said in an interview with MMAFighting.com that Silva told him: “I will be back.” “He had his second X-ray [Thursday] and everything looks great,”€ Guimaraes told TMZ. “It was a clean break so the nerves are OK. He’s already started physical therapy and he’s moving his toes.” Rizzo said Silva doesn’€™t seem to be interested in hanging up the gloves. “At the hospital, Anderson told me ‘€˜I will be back, master. I will be back,’” Rizzo told MMAFighting.com. “I told him ‘€˜Yeah, you’€™ll be back home to recover and rest’. And he said ‘I will be back, master.’€™ He’s a fighter. He has six months to recover, heal and then decide what he’s going to do next.”
