Good comedy can transcend nearly any language barrier.

This video, in Portuguese with no subtitles, attempts to answer this basic question: What would have happened if UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva became a soccer star instead?

Whether or not you can understand Portuguese is irrelevant to the amusement you'll get from watching this video that hit YouTube on Wednesday, 24 days before he defends his title against Long Island's Chris Weidman at UFC 162.
