Anderson Silva’s Elbow Will Be Good To Go For UFC 112

 Ed Soares & Anderson Silva

If you were worried that Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort would be moved from UFC 112 since it’s been postponed like ten times already, no need to. Anderson’s elbow is finally starting to heal and his manager, Ed Soares, expects him to be 100% come April 10.

“I believe that’s what it’s going to be. It’s going to be April, him against Vitor,” Soares said.

“He’s back training all the time. He’s doing really well. Just rehabbing the elbow and trying to get the full range of motion and everything, but he’s feeling well enough to train, and his training’s been going really well.”

“The elbow has been bothering him for a long time and that’s part of the reason that we just had to go ahead and do it because it wasn’t getting any better, and the longer that those fragments stayed there, it was other potential damage that those fragments were creating,” said Soares.

Brock Lesnar’s back. Lyoto Machida seems to be good for May. GSP is set for March. And Anderson is readying himself for April. The champs are finally healthy hopefully signaling the end of the perfect storm of injuries and illnesses that hit the UFC late last year. Now our patience is rewarded with a ton of big fights in the spring and early summer. Excited yet?
