After dealing with a shoulder injury, UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has returned to training according to physiotherepist Angela Cortez. Silva is likely to face the winner of the fight between Mark Munoz and Chael Sonnen in his next title defense.

Cortez's words via Globo:

"Anderson's shoulder is doing very well. He did a great job these past months and is doing well, with the postural part being excellent. He's well, he feels no more pain and is back in training. Now he only needs to improve on his physical condition. He's 100%. I believe he'll be announcing his next fight soon enough."

With talk of retirement after just two more fights for Silva before a possible retirement his health is a very important factor. 2012 may be the last year that we see Silva in the cage (although I doubt that turns out to be the case) so here's hoping he heads into his next bout with a fully healed shoulder.
