Video: Anderson Silva Gets His Leg Worked On

Absolutely no reason that Anderson Siva needed to come back from his brutal leg injury back at UFC 168 but his desire to recuperate and return to the cage is exactly the mentality that has allowed him to accomplish all that he has and be considered one of, if not the best fighter ever.

Coming out of Raw last night, I was convinced that the biggest heel of 2014 is turning out to be the injury bug.
