If you took every single kung-fu flick that you watched when you were a kid, shoved it into ‘God’s suggestion’ box and wrote him a note that said ‘Please make a Brazilian guy that’s all of this’, the end result would be Anderson Silva. He is everything Jean Claude Van Damme pretended to be in the early 90s. It’s also interesting to note that Green Lantern has a ring that grants him the ability to create any weapon imaginable and use it against an enemy. There’s one catch, Green Lantern can’t use his ring against anything that is yellow. Anderson Silva rocking yellow shorts his entire MMA career a coincidence? Not a chance. Anderson has already planned ahead. Now it appears Anderson Silva will be diving into the realm of NASCAR racing next month.
According to Phoenix International Raceway’s site, Anderson Silva will be the official pace car driver for Phoenix’s NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup event. Here’s what The Spider said about his new endeavor.
“I’ve been a NASCAR fan for a long time and it’s an honor to be part of the upcoming event in Phoenix,” Silva said. “I have much respect for these guys and they are undoubtedly some of the toughest athletes in the world. I can’t wait to get in the pace car in Phoenix.”
Great, now another sport Anderson Silva will eventually excel at. My god this physical activity multi-tasking. Let’s just hope Anderson Silva doesn’t pick up an Xbox 360 controller and play Battlefield 3, there will be nothing left for us. Props to David for the find.
