Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva suffered a gruesome leg injury less than two months ago at UFC 168 against Chris Weidman, but it looks like he's already back at it.

The 38-year-old isn't done yet, as the following Instagram video shows that he's already walking without crutches, even if it is rather gingerly.

This picture of Silva working out was also posted, showing that he's on his way to getting back into the Octagon.

He holds the longest title defense streak in UFC history with 16 straight wins and 10 consecutive defenses, but he lost his last two fights to Weidman. When he comes back, it's likely he'll be fighting once again to reclaim the UFC middleweight title.
