Rachelle Leah on Anderson Silva: "he’s my favorite fighter of all-time"
Leah will also be returning to her UFC All Access gig as she hosts an in-depth look into the life and training of the man headlining UFC 90, middleweight champ Anderson Silva.
“I’m so excited about it – he’s my favorite fighter of all-time,” said Leah of Silva. “Of all the guys I’ve worked with - and I’m friends with some of them and have respect for all them – he is on top of my list. He’s amazing. He’s so graceful in the Octagon, it’s my favorite thing to watch.”
Getting a return trip to Brazil isn’t bad either.
“We did go to Rio and to where he (Silva) was born and raised in Curitiba,” said Leah. “That was a great experience. He really welcomed us into his home, and his family is great. He doesn’t speak a lot of English, so the challenge there was how am I gonna communicate with him and make this look right and come off well, but the interaction with him was so great, and he speaks enough for us to have a great time, and you really get to see his genuine personality.”
