Anderson Silva’s jiu jitsu coach says his fighter came back to his corner after the first round complaining of a "broken rib". Ramon Lemos also told Tatame that he does not expect Anderson to return to fighting until around March 2011.
"After the first round he said he broke his ribs. He said told me he could not breath because of the rib. I told him to forget the rib and work the movement of legs and he would get the triangle… After the fight he went to the hospital and did an x-ray and the doctor said he did not break it, it was just a crack," he said.
"Anderson is expected to return in February or March. We have not talked, but he has to take care of injuries, he fought twice last year and had an operation on his elbow. This year he made two more fights and now with this rib injury ... He is no longer a boy, he is 34 years old."
