Ultimate Fighting Championship middleweight title holder Anderson Silva recently took time from his training in Brazil to answer an e-mail Q&A from The Enquirer's Tim Curtis about his bout with Cincinnati native Rich Franklin at U.S. Bank Arena Oct. 20.:

"I will deal with it like I always do, with a big smile on my face." --- Silva on the Cincinnati crowd.

Classy as always.

Anderson Silva has to be one of the classiest guys to step foot in the octagon. He never ceases to amaze me with his fighting and the way he handles the media attention and general crowd.

One of my favorite moments with him was before the Travis Luter fight. You could see just how angry he was with Luter for not coming prepared and turning his fight into a non-title fight. I will always appreciate his desire for real competition and look forward to what looks to be on paper the best Middleweight matchup we could ever ask for.
