UFC 168 in Tweets: Pros react to Anderson Silva's broken leg, Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate 2

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Anderson Silva lost to Chris Weidman for a second time on Saturday night. The bitter taste of defeat found Silva in the second round, just like last time, after Weidman captured a one-sided first round, just like last time. But if UFC 162 left us shocked, stunned, and a little confused, UFC 168 simply left us empty.

This time Silva lost not because of his own hubris, but because of injury. One checked leg kick, and just like that, Silva was done, potentially for good; felled by one of the most gruesome broken legs in UFC history. At 38 years old, Silva's time left in the sport was already short. If this is the end of Silva's road, a conclusion both unceremonious and unjust, it would be sad finale to one of the most brilliant careers our young sport has ever seen.

But such lamentations are premature with the wounds still so fresh. For now, the Weidman era truly begins.
