UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva

It was just another day at the office over at Black House gym in Southern California. Middleweight king Anderson Silva was on hand to assist Lyoto Machida prepare for his UFC 129 scrap with Randy Couture.

After watching his amigo drop two straight contests, the baddest 185-pounder in bare feet insisted on entering “The Dragon’s” training camp to ensure the former light heavyweight champ would be on point. Machida was perfect through his first 16 professional fights.

Silva and Machida clearly went easier on each other than the last guy seen sparring with them.

“UFC 129: St-Pierre vs. Shields” takes place April 30th inside the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada.
