Former middleweight champ and all-around likable dude Anderson Silva is in preparation for his upcoming fight against Nick Diaz at UFC 183. So deep in preparation, in fact, that video has just surfaced of him doing round after round of sparring… and he’s clobbering his sparring partners! Granted, what happens in the gym doesn’t always happen in the Octagon, but it’s a good sign that the man whose last appearance in the UFC ended with him being carted out on a stretcher has somewhat returned to his badass ways.
Watch the video below. Yeah, the narration is in Portuguese and pretty much indecipherable to non-speakers, but you can get the gist of what’s being said. Also, there’s footage at the end of Silva sparring with his young son.
Bonus tidbit: Should we be concerned that Silva is sparring with his son, and meanwhile, Diaz is training with world-class kickboxer Artem Levin?
