You may have noticed some red eyes from UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva as he walked out to face Stephan Bonnar this past weekend at UFC 153: Silva vs. Bonnar. That's because Silva, along with the rest of the Team Nogueira fighters, watched in celebration as Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira submitted Dave Herman.
Nogueira-Herman was the co-main event, and went on right before Silva defeated Bonnar from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. A host of Team Nogueira fighters took part in the event, and cameras caught the reaction by them in the back as "Minotauro" locked in an armbar on Herman.
