Football News

UFC legend Anderson Silva is one of the greatest mixed martial arts competitors ever, but he could do nothing when possibly the biggest legend in Brazilian sport history slapped him.

That’s correct; Anderson Silva, 38-year-old UFC middleweight champion, gets slapped across the face by Pelé, the 72-year-old football statesman, on a beach.

It is all part of a hilarious Vivo Sports viral video that depicts what life would have been like for the man who plies his trade in the Octagon if he had put his energy into a football career.

Silva’s aggressive play and imposing physique eventually make him incredibly unpopular when he finally turns out for the Seleção.

Pelé is forced to step in and puts things right with a swing of his right palm – it’s all very funny.

Watch Brazil legend Pelé slap UFC star Anderson Silva in the hilarious video below…
