Video: UFC champ Anderson Silva sucks at soccer, retaliates by choking out opposing players in Brazil

Anderson Silva has a good sense of humor when it comes to his shortcomings and doesn't mind being the butt of the joke -- so long as said joke isn't being told by Chael Sonnen.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva may be the best mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter who ever lived.

Luckily for him.

If he had tried to pursue another sport, like soccer, the results would have been dramatically different. That's the message of this new video from Brazil, the soccer capital of the world (I made that up so don't Email me if it's wrong), which highlights just how putrid "The Spider" is at futbol.

But who needs goals when you can just bitch-slap the opposing players?

How much longer Silva enjoys his ranking as pound-for-pound best largely depends on his performance at the UFC 162 pay-per-view (PPV) event, where he puts his title on the line against undefeated challenger Chris Weidman on July 6, 2013 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

For his sake, I hope he wins. It's not like he has soccer to fall back on.
