Over the past few years, Mixed Martial arts has grown to become one of the most popular and fastest growing sports in the world. Producing some of the greatest athletes on the planet, UFC has been the flag bearer of the sport since day one and is now the biggest promotion in the world by a mile.

While the athletes have gained fame inside the octagon, many have also managed to create a buzz outside the confines of the cage. Many fighters have been successfully roped in to star in countless Hollywood movies and have found great success in flexing their muscles and showing off their acting chops on the big screen.

Let's take a look at these fighters and their little-known movie cameos:

#10 Anderson Silva

UFC 101: Declaration - Anderson Silva Vs. Forrest Griffin
Anderson "The Spider" Silva

"The Spider" needs no introductions. Anderson Silva is often considered to be the greatest pound for pound fighter of all time. He has many records in the UFC and his exploits inside the Octagon have landed him countless movie roles.

Anderson's first role on the big screen was in a movie called Never Surrender in which he plays a fighter called Spider. Sadly for the Middleweight great, the movie turned out to be a big dud at the box office. After the debacle, Anderson acted in several other movies which didn't fare too well at the box office either.
