Anderson Silva’s deal with Burger King is a strange coupling.
After all, the Triple Whopper with its 1,230 calories and 82 grams of fat is hardly training food, unless, of course, you are Roy Nelson.
I am a conspiracy theorist at heart, so my first instinct was to suspect an elaborate plan by Dana White and the UFC to fatten Silva up so he’d be forced to change weight classes. The middleweight division is a wasteland and some potential uber-fights wait for Silva if he moves up.
I imagine some slimy promoter handing Silva bag after bag of Whoppers, saying “Don’t worry, Andy, it’s good for you; and besides, they’re free!”
Let's assume the Spider puts on a BK gut and moves up to light heavyweight, or really goes hard on the BK Mega Stackers and moves all the way up to heavyweight. Could he win the titles?
Here's a look at how the quarter-pound-for-pound champ would do against the UFC’s top big men.
