Anderson Silva out of UFC 198, may require gall bladder surgery
(sports.yahoo.com)
Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva was forced Tuesday to pull out of his homecoming fight in Curitiba, Brazil, with Uriah Hall because of abdominal pain that may require gall bladder surgery, UFC president Dana White confirmed to Yahoo Sports. Jeff Davidson, the UFC's medical consultant, told Yahoo Sports that Silva, 41, will be examined in Brazil for potential gall bladder surgery. "Anderson developed abdominal discomfort [Monday and] further evaluation today is consistent with acute cholecystitis," Davidson said Tuesday. "He will be seen by a surgeon today for possible surgery." Cholecystitis is inflammation of the gall bladder and is a primary reason patients have their gall bladders removed. Silva's removal from the show puts a major dent into the UFC 198 card, which will be held in his hometown. White said he is trying to find an opponent for Hall to keep him on the card.
