Anderson Silva is back to the gym and appears to be training for another fight following his short-notice decision loss to light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.
‘The Spider’ posted a video of some light sparring on his YouTube page on Saturday. Although the former middleweight kingpin doesn’t have another fight scheduled yet, the video reveals Silva is still in fighting shape and still as dangerous as ever.
See for yourself how ‘The Spider’ looks during a recent sparring session!
Silva has endured a series of setbacks both inside and outside the cage over the last few years. The former champ broke his leg in gruesome fashion while defending a leg kick from Chris Weidman in their rematch at UFC 168.
Then, ‘The Spider’ had a decision victory over Nick Diaz overturned following a failed drug test, causing the once seemingly-unbeatable to go winless since 2012.
Silva was offered the fight with Cormier after Jon Jones was pulled from UFC 200 after failing a drug test himself.
‘The Spider’ was soundly defeated by the light heavyweight champ by unanimous decision in a non-title bout.
How do you feel about Anderson Silva’s next fight? Should the former 185 pound champ consider retirement after dropping four of his last five fights? If ‘The Spider’ does continue fighting, who would you like to see him square off against? Sound off, PENN Nation!
