Anderson Silva to Join Dancing with the Stars?

The enigma that is Anderson Silva continues to baffle MMA minds worldwide. For all the flare and charisma the UFC middleweight champ has at his disposal inside and outside of the Octagon, the Brazilian has been rather obnoxious and stand-offish of late.

That was up until this past UFC Fan Expo weekend where “The Spider” once again showed fanatics why he’s such an asset to the mixed martial arts community.

Although he was the sport’s most hated man following his “embarrassing” performance last month at UFC 112, Silva emerged on the UFC 114 scene to support his Team Black House mate Antonio Rogerio Nogueira – while reminding everyone why they still need to pay top dollar to witness his mastery.

When asked what an irate UFC president Dana White said to him in a private conversation following his one-man circus act in Abu Dhabi, Silva quickly responded in vintage Anderson-like fashion.

“Anderson, I love you,” the Brazilian jokingly said of his come-to-Jesus talk with White.

Outside of the debacle at UFC 112, Silva sarcastically touches on his impending matchup with Chael Sonnen, the sense of urgency to finish his bitter rival at UFC 117, as well as an impromptu audition for Dancing with the Stars.
