VIDEO | Anderson Silva sparring with his son

September 3, 2016 3:53 pm by bjpenndotcom

Former UFC middleweight kingpin Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva has returned to the gym for training following his UFC 200 loss to light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.

Silva, who has been on a bit of a slide since losing his UFC middleweight championship to Chris Weidman in 2013, will be looking to return to the win column and bounce back from his back-to-back losses to Michael Bisping and Daniel Cormier.

Prior to that, Silva picked up a unanimous decision win over Nick Diaz in his return fight to the Octagon following his gruesome broken leg suffered in his rematch with Chris Weidman in December of 2015. Unfortunately for Silva, the win was overturned after he failed a drug test and was suspended for the infraction.

Footage of ‘The Spider’ back in the gym training following his loss to Cormier emerged earlier this week, which was followed up by the footage above of the MMA legend doing some boxing sparring with his son.
