Check out this photo of "The Spider" returning to the gym after suffering a nasty broken leg just six weeks ago.

Concluding the main event of UFC 168, former middleweight champion Anderson Silva suffered a gruesome leg break as he was throwing a low kick against champ Chris Weidman in the second round. Silva had emergency surgery immediately following the fight to repair the damage and only a couple weeks later, UFC president Dana White stated he'd be off crutches shortly.

White's statement proved to be true as the UFC Twitter account posted this picture of Silva on Saturday:

White has also assured fans that Silva will return to action before the end of the year. "The Spider" has not yet given a hard timeline for his return to the Octagon as of yet, however.
