Pic: UFC 148's Anderson Silva on the cover of Rolling Stone (dressed like Michael Jackson)

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva on the June 2012 cover of Brazil's Rolling Stone Magazine doing his best Michael Jackson impersonation.

Sans surgical mask and ranch full of younglings.

"The Spider" will try to see if he's "Bad" enough to defeat the "Dangerous" attack of Chael Sonnen in the main event of the UFC 148 pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for the MGM Grand Garden Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 7, 2012. A lot of pundits are picking the Brazilian to prevail, but things aren't always so "Black or White."

And if you're annoyed with all the "King of Pop" references, don't worry, "This is it."

Get a closer look at Silva's Rolling Stone photoshoot with a behind-the-scenes video (and all the gratuitous wardrobe changes) after the jump.
