MMA Fighting posted a video to their Youtube channel of Anderson Silva and Ronaldo Jacare Souza doing some light sparring. The two are winding down training camp for their respective fights at UFC 208 on February 11.
As the two men lightly spar in the video, everyone in the room has their phones out to record the magic. Meryl Streep definitely got it wrong. Anderson Silva and Jacare going 1/4 speed, is as beautiful as a Hawaiian sunset. I’m pretty sure this video is the very definition of the ‘arts’.
The former UFC Middleweight Champion of the World, Anderson Silva, will take on Derek Brunson in the co-main event of the Brooklyn card. Jacare will also be competing on the card against ‘The Barbarian’ Tim Boetsch.
Silva is considered by many to be the greatest fighter of all time. Although, he has hit a rough patch since losing his title to Chris Weidman in 2013. Silva has been defeated in his last 5 fights and is looking to rebound against Brunson.
Jacare looks to continue staying in the win column. He fought once in 2016 and it was his absolute thrashing of Vitor Belfort. With a win at UFC 208, he could make a very strong case for being the #1 contender in the middleweight division.
