He'll only really fight back in the first if his opponent is running at him like Griffin or if they do something really stupid and he accidentally knocks them down (like James Irvin)
This pretty much. Silva is a one of a kind, it's truly like being a basketball fan in the 90's and watching Jordan. We are lucky to see the work of art in the present.
