WARNING: The following video is not for the faint of heart.

In a UFC middleweight title bout against Chris Weidman, former champion Anderson Silva suffered a gruesome broken leg when his opponent checked Silva's kick with his shin.

The result was a grotesque injury along the lines of Louiseville's Kevin Ware last spring, as viewers were (mis)treated to the bottom half of Silva's leg simply breaking in two, with one piece left dangling in the air.

The incident took place in the second round, Silva fell to the canvas and Weidman retained his belt.

If you can stomach it, watch the replay now:
