Anderson Silva cheers on ‘Big Nog,’ plays doctor in your Spider images of the day

After Antonio Rodrigo Noguiera beat Brendan Schaub at UFC 134, Nogueira's friends and training partners broke out in a jubilant celebration. At UFC 153, he took out Dave Herman, and his friends reacted even more emotionally.

Man, it's getting a little dusty in here. (Wipes tears from eyes.) UFC middleweight champ Anderson Silva begins to cry when seeing his friend's triumph. This was Nogueira's first fight since having his arm broken by Frank Mir in December, so you could see why it was so meaningful for Silva and the rest of the group.

After watching Nogueira's win, Silva went on to win easily over Stephan Bonnar. Then, he went to the hospital and took care of Fabio Maldonado, the fighter who somehow survived two rounds with Glover Teixeira.

Is there anything Silva can't do?
