n the final stretch of training for the long-awaited title defense against Chris Weidman, on the 6th of July in Las Vegas, the sparring workouts of Champion Anderson Silva are on fire. Scheduled to travel Los Angeles on Saturday (22), where he should make his last week of training, Anderson is back to old form. Just ask his teammates from X-Gym, who helped Spider to make five rounds.
As usual, the champion moved a lot, let his guard down and allowed a few hits enter to simulate an unfavorable situation, he recovered in time to dominate the action and win the round.
Even requiring all the fighters at sparring to use shin guards and head guards, the Spider could not avoid an incident in the last round, when he landed a kick to the head of the partner who get knocked out.
Worried, Anderson immediately stopped the training to help the partner. The fellow came to himself, but Anderson, visibly upset, stoped his workout immediately and went to the locker room. "He hates it when these fatalities happen with teammates, so he left upset and didn't even spoke with Minotauro, who came here today to watch his training," said coach Ramon Lemos.
