Former UFC Middleweight champion Anderson Silva is considered by many to be the best pound-for-pound fighter to ever grace the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. In June 2011 "The Spider" made big moves outside of the eight-sided cage when he shelled out $1,760,000 for a home in Palos Verdes Estates, California. Located in the Lunada Bay/Margate community and set on half an acre, the home has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and one half, and offers bamboo floors, lightened high-beamed ceilings, three-car garage, swimming pool & spa, fire pit, and a large balcony with a great view.
