UFC LeBron James Anderson Silva

Move over Justin Bieber, because UFC middleweight king Anderson Silva has a new BFF. Miami Heat superstar LeBron James took his talents to UFC 148 on Saturday night to WITNESS Silva do his thang inside the Octagon.

After watching “The Spider” post a 2ndRound TKO victory over Chael Sonnen, James left his cageside seat to chop it up with his fellow Nike head backstage.

“Congrats from one Champ to another!!” James tweeted with the above picture.

James is in Las Vegas training with the USA Basketball squad. Word had circulated early Saturday morning that the newly-crowned NBA champion would be attending yesterday’s festivities.

Surprisingly, LA Laker Kobe Bryant, who is also preparing for Olympic gold and has watched several live UFC events in the past, was not in the house.
