Anderson Silva Will Keep On With The Force
In case anyone forgot in the last couple weeks, Anderson Silva is awesome. Not only is he a devestating fighter that makes good guys look really bad (Really really bad in some cases.), but he also seems like a great guy. He acts a little goofy sometimes and he doesn’t seem to take himself seriously outside the cage.
This video is from his 2002 Pride debut against Alex Stiebling. Be entertained…
This is easily my favorite Michael Jackson song. Not that I like Michael Jackson. Its just that this song was used during the Seinfeld clip show. Other than that, I would have no reason to care about this song. Just like I’ll always love Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now because of its inclusion in Shaun of the Dead. And More Than a Feeling after the Air Band episode of Scrubs. What was I talking about?
Oh yeah, this is the kind of thing that would push Anderson to the next level of popularity in the US. Well, that and speaking English.
Anderson is one of the top 3 pound-for-pound fighters in the world – if not #1. He should be marketed as such. He needs to be made into a cross-over multimedia star. Maybe the UFC can get him on True Blood as some sort of Brazilian vampire. Or the next Twilight movie. Something with vampires. We get Anderson Silva associated with vampires and the sky is the limit. Until then, we’ll just have to settle for old videos and more ass-kickings.
