Conor McGregor was very appreciative of the “Spider” Anderson Silva for his advice to the Irishman after he broke his foot in his last fight.

Conor McGregor took on Dustin Poirier at UFC 264, the most anticipated trilogy fight of UFC. At the end of the first round, Conor broke his foot and the fight was awarded to Dustin as a win by TKO (doctor stoppage). Since then Conor has been getting nothing but hate from his fellow colleagues. Anderson Silva, the former middleweight champion has been through the same in his career and he came back stronger. Silva had words of advice for Conor in his path to recovery.

I think for Conor right now, it’s about taking time, continuing to work, continuing to do the physiotherapy, continuing to work the upper body and take mind outside the fight game. Keep the focus on your girlfriend and don’t think about you go fight tomorrow or in six months. Just recover the body. Stay ready and prepare your mind,” Silva said.

The Notorious One has been very active on social media these days with a lot of time in his hand now that he is out of fighting until he fully recovers. Most of his social media posts have been nothing but banter, trash talk, and insults to his rivals in the sport. But Conor took some time off that negativity and decided to write a heartfelt message for Anderson Silva on his Instagram thanking the legend.

The claws came out. But no worries! I love a little scratch from a bitch. See yous when I get ya’s you’s little nobodies!” Conor wrote on his Instagram.
