Anderson Silva explains why elephant is not the King of the Jungle

Reigning Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva, who will put his belt on the line against Yushin Okami at UFC 134, discusses his opponent, as well as fighting in his home country of Brazil. Silva admits he is not sure what strategy Okami will employ in their bout, but guarantees he will be well-prepared to represent his team.

Silva vs. Okami will headline the stacked card from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro. The title clash will be a rematch of their 2006 meeting, in which Okami emerged victorious via disqualification, making him the last fighter to claim a victory over “The Spider.” Photo: Francis Specker

    Elephants are the kings in the jungle and there are no lions there anyway. Anderson Silva knows nothing about jungles.

    Asaitic Lions live in the jungle along with Indian elephants. Yes there are jungle Lions. Only a large pride of lions though give trouble to an elephant. But we all do know it is long been said the lion is king of beasts and I am sure he is talking about what we all recognize through our cultures in growing up.

    in africa, lions and elephants live in the same habitat, the savannah, not quite the jungle, but it’s a figure of speech i suppose.

    To be honest I back Anderson in a fight with either animal. He can KO the lion with a front kick to trunk and choke out the lion. It’ll be the mane event (geddit?)

    Anderson Silva is the king of the jungle… because he has opposable thumbs, the ability to shoot weapons… and is the P4P best!
