"I miss feeling like I have something important coming up sometimes. For sure," he said. "As far as missing fighting? No. I don't miss going in to get my ass beat. So it's something where I'd like it to be an important deal if I'm going to fight."
- Just eight weeks after shattering his lower leg in a fight against Chris Weidman, MMA legend Anderson Silva is back to hitting pads. Though practicing caution, UFC president Dana White believes that it could be a sign that we'll see The Spider return to action "by the end of the year."
"[Silva's doctor] said, 'This is actually crazy; look at all the bone growth that he has in eight weeks,'" White said (via MMAJunkie). "He said sometimes you don't see that kind of bone growth in people over a couple of years. Pretty crazy."
White was quick to add a statement of caution for those already getting excited in anticipation of Silva's return.
"We'll see what happens," White said. "Anything can happen. He can hurt it again in training or anything is possible. He could start training and not feel the same. We'll just see how it all plays out."
Check out the video of Silva's comeback progress below.
