Wanderlei Silva Prepares for UFC 84 by Working Out With Tape Over His Nose

I've never seen this before, but it makes perfect sense:

Wanderlei Silva, who is preparing to fight Keith Jardine at UFC 84 on May 24, wears a contraption with tape over his nose and a snorkel while he's working out to force himself to breathe through his mouth. That improves the cardiovascular benefit of the workout, and it prepares him for a situation that could arise in a fight, such as blood in his nose restricting his breathing.

It strikes me as a little silly that Silva was asked about getting a title shot in that video, seeing as he's on a three-fight losing streak. But I do think his fight with Keith Jardine has the potential to be a great one.
