Anderson Silva kick KOs training partner, leaves gym upset


According to the Brazilian Portuguese language website Portal do Vale Tudo, Anderson Silva, who so often get a knockout without appearing to try, inadvertently knocked out a sparring partner with a kick.

Champion Anderson Silva are on fire in the final stretch of training for the long-awaited title defense against Chris Weidman,on the 6th of July in Las Vegas. Scheduled to travel to Los Angeles on Saturday June 22, Anderson was in his last week of training in Brazil, and is back to his old form. Just ask a teammates of the X-Gym, who helped to gove The Spider five rounds of sparring.

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 though shin guards and head gear were required for sparring, Silva could not avoid an incident in the last round, when he landed a kick to the head of the partner who fell to the ground.

Concerned, Anderson immediately stopped training, knelt, and attended to the training partner. The fellow returned to consciousness on his own, but Anderson, visibly upset, stopped the workout immediately and went to the locker room.

"He hates it when these accidents happen with training partners," said coach Ramon Lemos. "So he left upset and even spoke with Minotauro Nogueira, who came here today to watch his training.".

Because it's hard to believe someone with 60% K.O rate in 33 career wins(some look like he barely even touched his opponent) can K.O someone while going hard in training. umm, ok. Anderson Silva need viral marketing? what the hell? his resume and absurd highlight reel speaks for itself.

Sorry man, he's a good friend of mine down there as a training partner for Anderson. He's told me some stories of how It gets pretty intense the last few weeks of Silvas camps. Just was curious if he was the one that got his head kicked off... Seems like something that would happen to him.

Of course, why would a friend or training partner help with some viral marketing? Unpossible!
