Anderson Silva scales an SUV while singing 'Spider-Man' theme song

Just your friendly neighborhood Silva.
Anderson Silva, the greatest UFC champion of all time, is taking his nickname - 'The Spider' - a little too seriously.
In a video he posted Monday on YouTube, Silva climbs up on top of what appears to be a pretty expensive Range Rover while singing the 'Spider-Man' theme song.
The former pound-for-pound king is already a more believable superhero than Tobey Maguire. He even has the web-shooting mannerisms down pat.
This is right around the time Silva should be starting training camp for his rematch with Chris Weidman at UFC 168 on Dec. 28 in Las Vegas. You might remember Silva clowned his way to a loss against Weidman back in July, losing his middleweight title and his top ranking in the process. Not to mention drawing the scorn of Brazilians everywhere.
Maybe scaling an SUV is part of his workout, who knows? But we're pretty sure Weidman isn't messing around too much out on Long Island, though his trainer, Matt Serra, is always good for a joke or three.
Silva is always incredibly confident. That's what comes from winning your first 16 fights in the UFC and making former champions look like absolute chumps. Except Weidman is a different breed. He never once feared the legend; there was never any kind of mental blockade for him heading into that fight unlike so many others.
All of that put together makes the UFC 168 main event arguably the most intriguing fight in organization history.
Silva doesn't seem to be too caught up in the hype. Has he ever? This is the same guy who dodges punches like the matrix, kicks people in the face for knockouts and then goes home to lip sync R&B and pantomime a Marvel character.
If that's not terrifying, we don't know what is.
