Anderson Silva Gets Fined $50,000 For Skipping UFC Scheduled Event

If you are Anderson Silva you can pretty much do anything that you want, right? Anderson Silva is the longest reigning UFC champion in history and has shown no signs of ever losing that UFC Middleweight Championship, ever. The way he shoulder rolls, moves his head, dances his way around shots and then can floor someone with just one perfectly placed strike is a thing of beauty. He’s planning on doing just that to Chris Weidman at UFC 162 and the UFC wanted him to do some media rounds this week to help pump up sales for tickets this week.

Well, Anderson chose to fly home to Brazil instead, because he’s Anderson Silva. This did not sit well with the UFC and they have opted to fine “The Spider” a cool $50,000 for this. This “media day” included radio and television interviews as well as a luncheon with local media.
