A new UFC promotional video is now out and it will surely send shivers down your spine as Anderson Silva stars in the 30-second video for UFC 183. This proves that the Spider is back in the game after his leg break injury last year. 

With his upcoming fight against Nick Diaz on Jan. 31, Silva has just shown in the video that he's ready for his UFC return.

The video was made with "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" song hauntingly chanted by a young girl in the background. Clips of Silva's leg-break injury while fighting Chris Weidman can be seen and at the end of the video, the texts, "a legend will rise" and "he's back" appear.


People are already excited for this fight as many of his fans thought that he will never be able to return to the Octagon after the gruesome leg break.

According to Sports World News, Silva underwent a long and extensive rehabilitation process to be able to return to his normal healthy self and seal a fight with Diaz. He recently posted an Instagram video of his training where it showed that his surgically repaired leg is completely healed, with him throwing kicks left and right.

Diaz, on the other hand, is also coming back from what FightLine considered as "self-imposed retirement" last year when he lost to Georges St-Pierre. He expressed that he plans to do his best for the fight but not to the extent that he will target the Brazilian's once-impaired leg.

"When someone tells you a fighter's injured and they tell you to go after an injury, it really throws you off. It would be sad to lose a fight on account of, you're trying to concentrate on capitalizing on someone's weakness," Diaz was quoted by Sports World News as saying.

His teaser video, on the other hand, featured him saying "Don't Be Scared" as he is set to face one of the greatest MMA fighters of this generation prior to his injury.

Aside from the main event, UFC 183 will also feature the following lineup of matches as noted by FightLine:

Welterweight: Tyron Woodley vs. Kelvin Gastelum

Welterweight: Thiago Alves vs. Jordan Mein

Female Bantamweight: Miesha Tate vs. Sara McMann

Flyweight: John Lineker vs. Ian McCall

Lightweight: Joe Lauzon vs. Al Iaquinta

Middleweight: Andy Enz vs. Thiago Santos
