For those who haven't been following the comeback of MMA legend Anderson Silva, he has been hard at work. Silva snapped his left leg during UFC 168 on Dec. 28, 2013 after middleweight champion Chris Weidman checked his powerful kick. 

We have seen Silva boxing and grappling in his recovery process, but thus far, the Brazilian has clearly minimized the use of that weakened leg.

Here's his latest video, where we see him rehabbing his leg back into kicking shape.

He's only kicking a rubber ball, but seeing as how he's just two and a half months removed from the injury, this is a very encouraging sight.
