UFC middleweight champion and arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet Anderson Silva Began training today with world-class trainer Freddie Roach. "He came in a couple days ago and I introduced him to Manny and the other trainers. We picked out a time and tonight he's gonna come in at 6:00 and start training with me," stated Roach.

"I hear he's a great striker and I hope we can help him improve even more," he continued. No stranger to helping mixed martial artists with their standup, Roach is also working with former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski to help him prepare for his upcoming clash with Fedor Emelianenko.
