Despite Anderson Silva’s doubtful MMA future after testing positive for steroids at UFC 183, the former middleweight kingpin is still sharpening and honing his craft behind closed gym doors. ‘The Spider’ recently uploaded a brief video clip of a sparring session with welterweight hopeful, Erick Silva. The two teammates can be seen sparring without headgear – per Anderson Silva’s Instagram post below:
Anderson Silva is expected to face the Nevada Athletic Comission on June 5 due to his failed drug test results from UFC 183, and it’s unknown as to whether we’ll ever see the 40-year-old return to the Octagon. Brazilian teammate Erick Silva is set to rumble with Rick Story on June 27 for The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 4 Finale. Silva is currently riding a two-fight win streak and will look to emerge as a top 170 lbs. contender with a win over Rick Story next month.
