Anderson Silva Says He’s Injured Again

It’s only been a week since Anderson Silva returned to the gym after nursing a shoulder injury for the past few months and Silva has already suffered another injury. Or at least that’s what he told Globo TV’s “Good Morning Brazil.” Transcription via SporTV (Google translation):

I’m not even sure when I come back, because I’m a shoulder injury, another injury that arose recently in my lower back, so I’m dealing with.

Dana White has said they would like book Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen II (if Sonnen beats Mark Munoz) at a Brazil soccer stadium in June, however it’s unclear if this new injury could throw a wrench into those plans or if it will affect the timing of Silva’s next title defense regardless of opponent.
