Anderson Silva's Diet - No Sugar, No Salt, and Post-Fight Brazilian BBQ



Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva is a lifelong fan of superheroes. It’s only appropriate, then, that for the man nicknamed "The Spider," his latest opponent—Israel Adesanya, in Saturday's UFC 234—is as much the Miles Morales to Silva's Peter Parker as he's ever faced during his decades-long combat sports career. Both are otherworldly striking talents who possess a mastery of timing and distance control, and even after the 29-year-old Adesanya's victory by unanimous decision became official, the scene that unfolded in the octagon was as neat an encapsulation as any of Silva's legendary status.
