Anderson Silva has recently stated that he wants to take time off until late 2013, and opening up his own school was one of the main reasons. That took place as recently at his grand opening of the Anderson Silva Muay Thai College in Torrance, CA. 

Our friends at MMA H.E.A.T. were on hand to get all of the ceremony, which featured Anderson Silva awarding his coaches for all of their hard work. The UFC Middleweight champion has made a huge name for himself and parlayed it into his own school.

The opening looked like it turned out to be a success. Will he step back into the Octagon on July 6th to face Chris Weidman?
