Manager: Anderson Silva ‘set on fighting’ at the beginning of 2015, eyeing Nick Diaz
(mmafighting.com)
Take one glance at the Twitter timeline of former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, and somewhere among the myriad of Instagram videos showing the sweat-drenched Brazilian hitting mitts and kicking heavy bags with his titanium-fortified left leg, it's easy to get a sense about Silva's current motivations, regardless of his recent 39th birthday. "He's definitely coming back," Silva's manager, Ed Soares, said on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "He's feeling good, he's training hard. Everything is good, man. Hopefully we'll see him back. We won't see him back any earlier than the end of this year or, most likely, the beginning of next year. "There's always a chance (he comes back in 2014), but as of right now I think his mind is set on fighting at the beginning of next year." One of the most accomplished fighters in the history of the sport, Silva (33-6) has nonetheless been relegated to the sidelines since suffering a gruesome leg break in the second round of his UFC 168 rematch against Chris Weidman. Although in the six months since the injury, his recovery has been nothing short of remarkable.
