In case you were curious, here’s a breakdown of the surgical procedure former UFC champ Anderson Silva had to undergo in the aftermath of UFC 168. As he suffered a fractured tibia and fibula (the two bones that make up the shin), Silva had to have a metal rod inserted into his leg to shore up the broken bones and aid in the healing process. Note: Dr. Steven Sanders descriptions aren’t gory at all, but are actually pretty clinical. Enjoy!
