Before they meet in the cage, Silva and Sonnen face off on Facebook

To promote the July 7 rematch between Chael Sonnen and Anderson "The Spider" Silva, Ultimate Fighting Championship has cast the pair in a comic that's been running on the UFC Facebook page. They've been using a superhero theme for some of the images, like the ones above -- Sonnen seems to be drawing from Captain America a bit, while Silva, a Spider-Man fan, is all in with the wall-crawler. The comic itself, however, hasn't featured the duo in their superhero outfits, but instead has shown the them training -- and trash-talking -- as they prepare for their big showdown. You can find one of the panels from it below, and check out Facebook to see the ongoing tale.
