Anderson Silva: “The Spider” Is Throwing Kicks Again

Anderson Silva

If his video blogs are any indication, maybe former UFC champion Anderson Silva is planning a return in 2015 because he wants to bulk up to light heavyweight.

The former middleweight champion added two new videos recently to his Instagram account. In the first, which you can view below, “The Spider” is throwing leg kicks just months removed from breaking his leg in a loss to Chris Weidman.

Silva has went through all of the recovery and rehab processes, and was cleared by his doctor recently to return to full-MMA training. While UFC president Dana White made it known he could fight this year, Silva appears set on returning after the calendar turns.

In the second video, Silva is shown working out at his gym. He made sure to update fans, stating the video was from Tuesday. Previously, a few videos were posted by Silva that were older, including one that showed him boxing with legend Freddie Roach.
