Anderson Silva to walk out to son’s new song at UFC 208, no more DMX

Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva will make his way to the octagon tomorrow at UFC 208 but he will do so without the familiar sound of rapper DMX’s “Ain’t No Sunshine.”

The song was so synonymous with Silva, in fact, that when the Brazilian middleweight tried to replace it with another before his fight with Nick Diaz in 2015, UFC President Dana White wouldn’t let him.

Silva’s son Kalyl is an a teenager aspiring to become a famous rapper who recently released a track entitled “Doom.”

“There’s no fighting with the god of all fighters
There’s no fighting with the one they call Spider
You bring the oil, we bring the lighter
Take the bar higher, I’m a spider crawling in a room
I’m bringing doom.”

Silva fights Derek Brunson in the UFC 208 co-main event in Brookly, New York on Saturday.
