In the continuing effort to humanize the stars of the UFC for the casual sports fan, Fox has their second UFC on Fox ad ready to go and Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva gets the star treatment in the new :30 spot.
While Silva doesn't speak English that frequently (or at all) in interviews that UFC fans routinely see, Silva speaks fluently throughout the ad. Whether or not it's his actual voice is up for debate, but the spot is pretty well-done and very lighthearted.
The ads starts with Silva explaining how people think he has superpowers, but that he likes to help when he can. Along the path, the champion stops a washing machine with his fist, kicks a car several feet after its alarm goes off and stops an earthquake after punching the ground.
"I'm just a regular guy who likes hitting things...a lot," he says before winking at the camera.
The first spot Fox ran featured Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones taking care of his kids among other things and the Silva spot is very similar in nature: normal guys that just happen to have a violent occupation.
Silva will defend his title in a much-anticipated rematch against Chael Sonnen this June. Watch the full clip after the jump.
