Anderson Silva Is Working On His Wrestling, Just Not How You Think (Update)

It’s often suggested that fighters venture outside their home camps every now and then to learn new techniques and get new looks. Well, I don’t think anyone has quite taken that to heart like Anderson Silva. I’m not sure if this trip was specifically made in preparation for Chael Sonnen, but here’s video of Silva working on his wrestling in a way you would never expect… huka huka dirt wrestling with the Indians of the upper Xingu. I’m not even sure what huka huka dirt wrestling is, but I’m going to assume it’s pretty badass.

Oh and by the way, Silva has a very simple message for Chael Sonnen: “Chael talks too much. Chael needs to train. No more talk, train. Going to Brazil? Big problem.” Also badass.
