Anderson Silva, known primarily for his Muay Thai skills, is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt under Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. "The Spider" was crowned the UFC middleweight champion after his victory via TKO over Rich Franklin in October of 2006. It is because of Silva's dominance, in such promotions as the UFC and PRIDE, that he has been said to be the "best pound for pound Mixed Martial Arts fighter in the world." Since being a member of the Chute Boxe Academy, Silva has joined Team Black House. Anderson Silva has competed as both a light heavyweight and middleweight in the UFC. On many occasions, "The Spider" has said that he plans to retire in 2009, the year his UFC contract expires.
