UFC Champion, Anderson "Spider" Silva
Anderson Silva is a Brazilian Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) champion who holds the record for most title defenses in UFC history. Many have called him the greatest MMA fighter of all time. After breaking his leg in a fight he was out for a year healing and training. In January of 2015, he courageously returned to the ring in UFC 183, beating challenger Nick Diaz.
I had a chance to meet the champ during a photo shoot with celebrity sweat as a second shooter for celebrity photographer and fellow Tamron Image Master, Hernan Rodriguez. This was a really fun shoot for me as it combined two of my passions, photography and MMA. Thanks Hernan for inviting me!
