I met Anderson Silva only once. He was standing with Feijao laughing after Feijao lost his Strikeforce light heavyweight belt to Dan Henderson a few years ago. Feijao, Feijao was not smiling. He was really bummed, actually. I felt bad for him, but my buddy wanted to take a picture with Anderson, so I snapped it. After the photo was taken, Anderson said something in Portuguese to no one in particular then busted out in a huge guffaw. We felt weird so we left after saying thank you.
That story isn’t really meant to lead into anything, it’s just Anderson being Anderson. If you’d like more of Anderson being Anderson, you can watch this nearly 22-minute interview with him, as the UFC exposes ‘all angles’ on The Spider. I guess that did kind of tie together in the end.
