Actually, watching Silva in this fight, reminded me of a tactic an ex-Special Forces friend of mine has used in many bar fights. He backs himself up against the wall, usually into a corner, and just fights however many guys come at him. However, my buddy does that to make sure that he can't be attacked from behind. Obviously that's not why Silva did it, I just felt like expressing what the fight reminded me of.

This.

Silva was just showing off his amazing reflexes and making Bonnar look silly. After Bonnar misses with the kick you can see the look on Andersons face. Silva almost is laughing. Then he moves right back in front of Bonnar, basically mocking him.



This video shows him training his reflexes for this exact situation.

Would love to see Diaz and Silva. 1/2 the fight would be hands down looking funny moving their heads at one another.
ROFL...I would love to see Diaz flicking Silva off and and swearing and at him. At the same time Silva is over there do his Bruce Lee crap trying to avoid the Stockon slap...

Everything is a tactic, it's just we don't see it or can even truly comprehend. He did explain it at the post conference.

I use to think I knew how to analyze what he was doing to some extent. In reality he's quite beyond the average fighter. His techniques are not only super advanced, but are done on improv. I mean a trip then knee to the plexus. That wasn't planned...it appeared and in a split second his mind calculated that was the right attack to implement.

His entire training staff was telling him to get out of the corner. Yet he did the opposite and showed he was in full control...

Hahah...I think Chuck did that in his fight. My instructor years ago said that as well. Just kick anybody who's coming at least you know you won't get bottled from behind.

That is one of the "grand battles" in history. Read Steven Pressfield "Gates Of Fire." It's about the battle at Thermopylae.

its amazing

he made it look so effortless, even when bonnar had him against the cage he was just so calm and composed. i could not beleive it when he was backing up against the cage and just giving bonnar a chance to hit him,

this guy is just on another level....

The best 'tactic' Silva used was getting put in the ring with a guy about 4 orders of magnitude worse than him as a fighter.

Brilliant strategy!
