Get your own Anderson Silva luxury watch for the low, low price of $30,000
Anderson Silva may not have the UFC gold around his waist anymore, but that doesn't mean he's not worth thousands upon thousands of dollars to the right sponsor.
$30,000 to be precise.
The former middleweight king just signed a new sponsorship deal with high end Swiss watchmaker Hublot for a limited-edition timepiece called the 'Hublot Spider,' as the fighter announced on his Twitter account Friday.
The watch will run around $30,000 for those interested in picking up a piece and wearing 'The Spider' along with your finest suits.
Hublot watches are considered to be some of the most expensive in the entire world not to mention their extravagant $5 million watch — which is diamond encrusted from front to back and costs, yep, you guessed it, $5 million dollars.
Hublot has stepped into sports sponsorships before, most notably being the featured sponsor for Formula 1 team Scuderia Ferrari. The watchmaker has also dealt with other high-end celebrities and athletes such as Kobe Bryant, Usain Bolt and hip-hop artist Jay-Z.
Georges St-Pierre may be the UFC's biggest star in terms of pay-per-view draw, but it's getting harder and harder to ignore Silva's global domination in sponsorship dollars as he locks up deals with companies like Nike, Burger King and now Hublot.
