UFC 237: Anderson Silva Injures Leg in Lost!!!
First Name Tom, Last Name Foolery… And I’m Everybody’s Uncle!
Even this fading legend… Anderson Silva.
This was not the return to Brazil that Anderson Silva wanted.
Silva, the former longtime UFC middleweight champion, was hesitant during the first round of his UFC 237 fight with Jared Cannonier on Saturday night. The round mostly belonged to “The Killa Gorilla” until the fight ended in an unfortunate fashion.
In the closing seconds, Cannonier (12-4 MMA, 5-4 UFC) threw an inside leg kick that buckled Silva’s knee. It was immediately evident that Silva (34-10 MMA, 17-6 UFC) was in pain as he fell to the canvas, causing referee Herb Dean to step in at the 4:47 mark, declaring Cannonier the winner by TKO.
The middleweight bout was the UFC 237 co-main event from Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro & streamed on ESPN+ pay-per-view.
Afterward, Silva admitted to struggling with his right knee during training camp. He was in noticeable pain as he apologized to the crowd.
