Anderson Silva Goes Really Hard, Punishes His Sparring Partner In New Video

Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva is a legend of the sport in many fight fans’ eyes. Still, things appear have not all been going great for the fighter as of late. Now a video has surfaced to the internet of the former champion battling it out in sparring practice. However, “The Spider” turns up the heat after being stung with a strong punch.

Anderson Silva most recently made headlines for failing another drug test. The fighter was set to face off against Kelvin Gastelum at UFC Fight Night 122 for the promotion’s debut in Shanghai, China. However, Silva was pulled from the night’s main event after being flagged by USADA for a failed drug test.

That being said, Silva appears to be hard in training. In the video above, “The Spider” can be seen working on his striking with a little sparring. The former champion held his own with his sparring partner, dishing out a few quick strikes here and there. However, things took a turn when the sparring partner clipped Silva with a punch.

Seemingly heated from the strike, Silva poured on the pressure and began unloading a flurry of strikes against his sparring partner. Check it out in the video above.
