Video: Erick Silva trains for Rick Story fight by punching Anderson Silva in the face

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight heartthrob Erick Silva collides with veteran 170-pound bruiser Rick Story in the co-headliner of the upcoming UFC Fight Night 70 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1, taking place on June 27, 2015 inside the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida (more on that here).

So, what is "Indio" "The Tiger" doing to prepare for the "Horror" Story?

See for yourself.

Nice to see Anderson Silva making good use of his time off.

Silva (18-5, 1 NC) is fresh off a first-round submission win over the rapidly-deteriorating Josh Koscheck, in what amounts to his second first-round victory in as many tries, having previously choked out Mike Rhodes last December in Brazil.

Hard not to like his chances when he's training with someone the caliber of "The Spider."
