Video: Anderson Silva throws first pitch at Dodgers game, bounces it in the dirt

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight champion Anderson Silva is making good use of his downtime, throwing out the ceremonial first pitch for the Los Angeles Dodgers last weekend (July 12, 2015) in "The City of Angels," alongside the "Make a Wish" foundation.

He bounces it in the dirt, which is the exact opposite of former light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones, who sent his first pitch at the Rogers Centre way up in the air (watch it). The good news is, none of those baseball players can say shit, because I'm sure they would look equally awkward if they had to get into the Octagon on fight night and throw a ceremonial first high kick.

Silva is riding the pine for the foreseeable future as his legal representatives try to sort through some of the clutter that has been piling up after "The Spider" flunked his UFC 183 drug test earlier this year in Las Vegas, Nevada. For more on that ongoing saga click here.
