Vitor Belfort and Luke Rockhold headline Saturday’s UFC on FX 8 fight card, so what better way to promote their shootout than by airing a feature on …. UFC middleweight king Anderson Silva (pictured)? “UFC From All Angles: Anderson Silva” premieres tonight on FUEL TV at 9:30PM ET. The show is filmed at Silva’s new Muay Thai College in Torrance, California. “The Spider” talks about some of the key points in his illustrious career, including his first fight for the UFC title against then-champ Rich Franklin. “Rich Franklin is the best in this category for a long time,” Silva said. “I respect Rich Franklin for giving me the chance for the belt.” Silva then opens up about the difficulties he’s faced in becoming the UFC’s most decorated champion. “It’s not so easy,” Silva adds. “I’m the champion now. A lot of people talk to me, ‘Ah, you’re the best, go to the party.’ These aren’t real friends. You need your real friends. A lot of people love you, but you need to keep your focus … It’s not easy.
