Silva Out At UFC 109, May Return April 2010

As good as Anderson Silva is, even he can be bitten by the injury bug; in his case, it is his recovery from recent elbow surgery. Because his recovery time is taking longer than usual, it appears highly unlikely that Silva will participate in UFC 109 on February 6, 2010 against Vitor Belfort and may not be able to fight until April 2010.

According to Silva:

“I went to the doctor who takes care of me in Brazil on Monday. I had surgery in the United States but there is communication between the two medical teams. To sum it up, some movements aren’t at the expected stage [of recovery].

“I’m crazy to come back, train hard and fight but some moves still hurt so much. I just came from jiu-jitsu training where I was teaching my students and I could not even could make some positions with them.”

So there you have it. With Silva out, it would be mere speculation as to what the main event will be at UFC 109; I wouldn’t be terribly surprised if the Randy Couture-Mark Coleman bout becomes the main event.
