Erick Silva recalls Anderson Silva Saving his life while they were out boating

Erick Silva recalls Anderson Silva Saving his life while they were out boating

Jon Jones isn’t the only hero/fighter. UFC welterweight knockout and submission artist Erick Silva says when he and Anderson “The Spider” Silva were out boating, the middleweight reigning champ came to his aid.  He was in desperate need of help as one of his shoulders was a detriment to him while he was making his way back to shore.

We went boating, earlier this year, and he told us to swim to shore. But my shoulder was so bruised and I was on the way,” Silva told Tatame. “I almost died drowning (laughs). When he came and helped me if he had not come I would have died (laughs). “

Thankfully the pound-for-pound king was there to rescue the young star at 170lbs, because somebody is going to have to be there for Georges St. Pierre if the champ continues to take out every contender in the title picture, and Silva certainly has the tools to give the welterweight champ all he can handle.

The Spider is focused on eliminating the challenge ahead, Chris Weidman, making it eleven-straight title defenses at 185lbs (UFC record).

UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman is set to go down in “Sin City” for the middleweight championship. It will be “Undisputed vs. Undefeated” on July 6th.
