No, they were fighting at a decent pace at that point and it was clear that he had Vitor's timing down and was finding his distance. As soon as Silva dodged that 3 punch combo I thought he was going to destroy Vitor pretty soon. Andy needs to feel like he is in a fight and then he gets super focused and goes for the kill.

It's absolutely true. I've seen probably majority of his fights and I know how he works. He never comes out swinging. He lightly plods towards the center circling with his jabs feinting. Except this time he was a lot tighter because he knew Belfort could explode. Instead they both feinted with their body and shoulder movement. Vitor drew first blood, but it was only a low kick. It was the first 1 2 combo that grazed Anderson that's when it started. Right after Anderson did a crescent kick where Vitor ducked under it and took him down. What most people didn't see was that Vitor swung at Anderson and he dodged it on his way down and Vitor swung again with a right hook and Anderson moved his head back in the nick of time then got up, clinched/kneed Vitor and they broke off. Vitor went with a mid kick which Anderson blocked and returned fire with a low kick, Vitor whiffed a 1,2, then missed another 1,2,3 combo and that was the last. Seriously any one of those shots would have KOed anybody. most fighter are NOT quick enough to dodge those shots. It's a testament to Anderson's defense and reflexes.

Yes, it was the MATRIX folks. Actually it reminded me of Super Saiyan mode.
