Fan's macabrely prophetic tweet to Silva before fight


Just prior to UFC 168, Anderson Silva made a not particularly remarkable tweet.

Anderson Silva ‏@SpiderAnderson
Today I lived an unforgettable moment. I went to see BOYS II MEN, a group I grew up listening to in Brasil.


Then a fan offered a joking reply.

Tim Reuben ‏@TimReuben
@SpiderAnderson Break a leg tomorrow! Hopefully not yours!

Then this happened.

The message has since been retweeted over 16,000 times, and counting.

Right. Because "break a leg" is such an unpopular saying.

Yeah, his leg was already fractured but he decided to throw leg kicks anyway, even though Weidman already showed he'll be checking em this time around. Clearly this is the most logical explanation yet.

Before the main card- Dana and joe were doing their pre main card hype and Dana white said that this fight could determine Anderson's future career and it would come down to leg kicks.
