UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva joins HDNet’s “Inside MMA” this week as a guest panelist on the program. In Friday’s episode, Silva and his manager, Ed Soares talk about Silva’s record-setting victory over Thales Leites at last weekend’s UFC 97.
Silva was victorious by unanimous decision against Leites, but has faced criticism for a lackluster performance – including comments from UFC President Dana White. Kenny Rice and Bas Rutten give Silva a chance to answer those critics on this Friday’s show.
Rounding out Friday’s panel is actor Channing Tatum, who is on the set to talk about his new movie, “Fighting” which opens in theaters this week.
