UFC’s Anderson Silva nabs Hublot watch sponsorship

Elias Cepeda

Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson has added to his list of big-name corporate sponsors with the luxury Swiss watchmaker Hublot. Basically, Hublot makes the most expensive watches in the world.

So, if you own one - congratulations. Hubolt is designing and producing just one hundred Anderson Silva branded custom watches that will reportedly cost around $30,000 each. Ten of those hundred watches will be made in gold.

Hublot has done similar deals with soccer legend Pele, track field star Usain Bolt, NBA star Kobe Bryant and rapper Jay-Z.

Hublot makes a watch that costs $5 million. Jay-Z's wife Beyonce reportedly bought one of those for her man. So there's that.

"The Spider" is already sponsored by Burger King and Nike and has become one of the few MMA fighters to garner so many mainstream corporate sponsors to date. Silva next fights the man who took his UFC title away from him - Chris Weidman - Dec. 28 at UFC 168.

Any of you readers out there own a Hublot watch? If so, shouldn't you be getting ready for your fox hunt instead of wasting time here with us plebeians?
