“It’s amazing, I’m the reason, everybody fired up this evening.” When Kanye West wrote that line, it was as though he intended it for what Anderson Silva (Pictured) means to UFC 153.
Because if this “Spider” wouldn’t have come along at the last-minute, the October 13th fight card would be lacking some serious star power.
We all know that Silva is a hardcore “Belieber,” but the UFC rightfully used Kanye’s “Amazing” in the background of their latest promo featuring the reigning middleweight king.
Silva will be jumping to the light heavyweight class to battle Stephan Bonnar in Brazil.
HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro hosts the festivities.
