Watch: Anderson Silva Engages In Highly Tense ‘Faceoff’ With Himself At UFC 212 Media Day

Anderson Silva engaged in a hilarious one-man stand-off with himself after his UFC 212 opponent Kelvin Gastelum was forced off the card by USADA.

Anderson Silva has found himself without an opponent for his main-card appearance at UFC 212 in June after his scheduled dance partner Kelvin Gastelum was pulled from the event for testing positive for marijuana after his UFC Fight Night victory over Vitor Belfort in March.

Now, with Silva rumoured to face everyone from Belfort himself to the former champion Luke Rockhold, the unfortunate situation surrounding his opponent-change clearly hasn’t dampened the Brazilian’s spirit, with him using today’s UFC 212 media day as an opportunity to poke fun at his own predicament.  (video via
