UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva

The Brazilian Wandering Spider, also known as the Banana Spider, is considered to be one of the world’s deadliest species. They are both aggressive and extremely venomous. Coincidentally, UFC champion Anderson “The Spider” Silva is the most lethal middleweight the sport of mixed martial arts has ever witnessed.

Just days before the Octagon hosts their first show on Brazilian soil since 1998, UFC president Dana White relayed a National Geographic-inspired clip featuring the baddest 185-pounder in bare feet.

“WARNING: Anyone going to Rio for 134 should be on the lookout for the deadly Brazilian wandering spider!” White tweeted.

This Saturday at UFC 134, Silva will defend his throne against Yushin Okami inside the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro.
