Plus Calzaghe beats him prime vs prime
You don't consider Michael Page cocky?

Watch the guys interviews. He gets asked if he's cocky, and he answers "I've always faught like this. Since I first started kickboxing it was my fighting style and it worked for me, so I'll never change it". I also made a video with the dudes kickboxing stuff in it. If he's faught like this since day 1, it's not really cocky, it's just what works for him.

Anderson Silva = #1
Michael Page = The Future #1

I personally don't have a problem with 'cocky' fighters as long as they can back it up come fight time. I just thought it was strange someone hates RJJ but likes Michael Page.

The article above is not about Silva's signature moves, but a glimpse of his arsenal of techniques he is able to apply in a fight.
All of this is true, but every time Silva fights, I do expect to watch him make whoever he is fighting miss badly with his head movement and I also look for him to throw and likely land at least 1 of his devastating stepping jabs. So..., in reality, I'd consider both of those Signature for him.

The bolded is completely wrong. Just because it's something that someone has done succesfully their entire life doesn't make it any less cocky.

What about the reverse foot sweep, karate chop to the ankle, and reverse elbow.

As far as I can remember no other fighter has implemented those tactics. The LHW title holder copied a plethora of moves from em.

My favorites which have nothing to do with actual striking is his movement with his feet (Capoeria style), head, and his hands. People don't realize how truly advanced he is.

If you really study majority of the fighters you'd recognize that they're similar replicas of one another. aside from a few variations. Majority use the same stance, same striking techniques, same combinations, same fighting style. That's what really makes em stand out. After watching 19 years of this it's nice to be surprised.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Honestly I just don't buy that. Finishing a fight and freezing in place as a pose is not a style of fighting. It's showmanship/cockiness. I didn't enjoy the Old Rashad Evans showboating, never enjoyed Anderson doing it in the cage. But I am a complete hypocrite and my opinion should be thrown out because I enjoy Nick Diaz and his tactics because those are head games and attempts to get his opponents to bring the fight to Nick.

I'm completley cool with doing whatever you want when the fights over. I just meant that his actual style of fighting isn't cocky, it's been his style since he was nothing in small time kickboxing organisations. And to be fair, if you're post fight celebration is anything, I think it HAS to be in the confidence catagory, cause you know, you just knocked your opponent out haha.

Again with Nick, it's almost his strategy. He fights USING his low guard, his taunts, everything. His style is designed to force someone to engage or submit. Also, I heard a weird concept the other day. There is a style which uses talking as a way to guage distance. My karate sensei spoke of it after he seen me going Diaz style against someone I was sparring against (just messing around), but then he said we dont do it in karate so I can fuk off with that shit haha.
