UFC president Dana White visited former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva on Friday, and it looks like he’s recovering well, as expected.

Silva suffered a fracture of both his tibia and fibula when champion Chris Weidman checked one of the Spider’s kicks in their Dec. 28 main event bout at UFC 168 in Las Vegas. Silva was immediately rushed to the hospital for surgery, where he had a rod inserted below his knee cap that runs the length of his tibia.

After visiting with Silva, White tweeted the above pictures, noting that Silva is expected to be walking without crutches in 30 days.

That’s quite the recovery after Silva broke both bones in his leg.

He is still expected to be out of action for the better part of 2014, but Silva’s manager, Jorge Guimaraes, told MMAWeekly.com that he expects that Silva will fight again, likely in one year. White backed that up when he told FoxSports.com that Silva told him that he plans to return and fight again.

Here’s wishing Silva a swift and complete recovery.
