Anderson Silva: Celebs & Fans React To His Horrific Leg Injury

Sun, December 29, 2013 11:58am EST by 7 Comments

After the UFC icon suffered a horrible, leg-bending injury on Dec. 28, stars and fans rushed to Twitter to express their shock over seeing such a gruesome incident, and also to send their prayers to the ailing fighter.

At almost the exact same time Anderson Silva hit the ground after breaking his leg during his UFC title fight against Chris Weidman, stars, athletes, and fans took to Twitter to post their reactions. And because Anderson’s leg-bending break was the worst sports injury since Kevin Ware‘s bone-protruding injury in March, there were too many reactions of shock, horror, and sadness to count.

Though some celebrities were tweeting about the gruesome injury, most of the notable reactions came from fellow athletes — including Joe Theismann, who suffered a horrific leg break of his own in the ’80s — who wanted to wish Anderson a fast and safe recovery:

I’m curious to find out what blog system you are utilizing?
I’m experiencing some minor security problems with my latest
blog and I would like to find something more risk-free.
Do you have any suggestions?
