Anderson Silva Posts Training Photo of Him Grappling, Says, “I’m Back”
Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva posted a photo of himself back on the mats on Sunday saying, “I’m back.”
It’s unclear when Silva will actually be able to return to the Octagon, but he has indicated his desire to do so, and his manager
and UFC president Dana White both said they believe he will be back near the end of the year.

Good news for Silva and his fans to see him back on the mat!
