UFC middleweight champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva has taken some time off from fighting to recover from a shoulder injury, but that has not kept the world’s number one pound-for-pound mixed martial artist from doing another one of his favorite activities, dancing.
Silva appeared on a Brazilian TV show over the weekend where he danced and lip-synched to songs by teenage pop music superstar Justin Bieber. Silva and several backup dancers performed intricate dance routines with an MMA flavor.
Bieber seems to be a fan of Silva and the UFC and even attended UFC 132 in Las Vegas back in July. Also, it was only a couple weeks ago that Bieber brought “The Spider” on stage at one of his concerts in Brazil to show off some of the champ’s dance moves (see below).
I’m not sure why, but this whole Bieber-Silva phenomenon for some reason reminds me of the strange friendship that used to exist between Michael Jackson and Macaulay Caulkin. And we all know how much Silva loves “Jacko”.
If Silva and Bieber want to do dance routines together or have water balloon wars, that’s cool. Let’s just hope there will be no sleep overs or taking baths together.
