I was thinking the same thing, and I need to see the kick a couple more times to be sure, but from the way it looked from the replay, it seemed like it was an actual strike.
Most push kicks, the knee comes up first and then thrusts forward, but Silva's kick was straight legged, and only bent at the hip.
In short, there wasn't alot of 'pushing' going on.
