UFC 168: Chris Weidman and Ronda Rousey Retain Their Titles; Anderson Silva’s Career is Likely Over

Read the title of the post above, after the semicolon — no hyperbole.

Anderson Silva will be 39 in April. His career is probably over.

In the second round of last night’s fight, he went in with a leg kick on Chris Weidman. Weidman checked the kick and the impact of Silva’s shin hitting the knee of Weidman incited an instant break of the leg and it curved. Moments later, Silva was on the mat and the bout was over. Just like that.

Here’s a .gif (WARNING: POTENTIALLY GRAPHIC.)
