In the Middleweight division, we are gifted with an absolute treat! The man, the myth, the legend… Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva. Former UFC Champion and Brazilian Hero step’s back on home soil to defend his country’s honour versus a less than capable opponent in my opinion.
Call me biased, I don’t care. I will fanboy the f*** out when Anderson walk’s through that curtain into the arena on Saturday night in Rio De Janeiro and considering Jared’s more than average career performance, we might see a beautiful leg kick or knee finish like all times from The Spider. Anderson was able to hurt Daniel Cormier even though coming up short, and his battle with current Interim Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya wasn’t an easy one for the champ.
