UFC 153 open media workout photos gallery for 'Silva vs Bonnar' in Rio

Several notable fighters who will compete this weekend (Oct. 13, 2012) at UFC 153 descended upon Arcos da Lapa: Praca Cardeal Camara earlier this afternoon in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to hit the mitts and show off their jits. Anderson Silva, Stephan Bonnar, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Dave Herman, Fabio Maldonado, Erick Silva and Wagner Prado, among others, were in attendance to promote "Silva vs. Bonnar." shutterbug extraordinaire, Esther Lin, was on the scene at Arcos da Lapa: Praca Cardeal Camara in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, earlier today (Oct. 10, 2012) to shoot several of the notable fighters who will compete on the UFC 153: "Silva vs. Bonnar" pay-per-view (PPV) card this Saturday night (Oct. 13, 2012) for the event's open media workouts.

Naturally, the two men who will collide in the main event of the evening, Anderson Silva vs. Stephan Bonnar, were strutting their stuff to promote their "fun," three-round 205-pound non-title main event, which was cobbled together when Featherweight champion Jose Aldo was involved in a motorcycle accident.

And "The American Psycho" -- who was all smiles, flexes and poses -- was seemingly enjoying every second of all the special attention.

Former interim UFC heavyweight Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, who will co-headline the PPV on short notice opposite Dave Herman, was also in good spirits, as well as Fabio Maldonado, Erick Silva and Wagner Prado, who were all on hand to work up one of the last few real sweats prior to their respective bouts this weekend at the HSBC Arena.
