My god.



I think Anderson was a little dirty last night as far as the grease/bizarre shorts grabbing.. but it didn't matter. This sway sealed the deal. Jesus Christ, Anderson is so slick.

I just watched the gif about 30 times and am amazed by Silva's timing.

Just adds to his matrix type highlight reel. And Sonnen called Griffin slow.

yeah it looks good from that angle, but did you remember seeing it from another ? sonnen missed by about a good meter from hitting the mark. horrible attempt that cost him the fight.

Its amazing that the Gif is in slow motion, and yet that movement is still so quick.

From that point of view it almost looks like Chael got tripped up by Anderson's leg. Its clear missing is what start it but it kind of looks like Anderson's leg may have sealed the deal.

Fairly extraordinary. Cannot tell if Silva is a fight psychic or not.

You can see from the original birds-eye view that he juked right for the spinning backfist looking down without even looking at Chael

That's impressive as hell, and explains how the hell he fell down on that.

I was going to point that out but the Silva guys deserve to have their moment.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not debating that Anderson isn't some sort of wizard/ninja hybrid, his matrix moves against Forrest still leave me shaking my head but....

Andy didn't see the spinning backfist coming, he just happened to be weaving away from the lead left and the rest is just a beautiful coincidence. His head was down and he was moving to the outside of the angle Chael attacked from.


I wish Sonnen never tried the spinning back fist in hind sight but to be fair, it would have been amazing if it landed or just an after thought if it missed and he didn't slip/trip on Anderson's foot. It was a high risk move, it didn't work out for him but he just as easily could have tripped 20 seconds later and been in the same position.

There should be a thread dedicated to Anderson Silva dodge GIFS. He reminds me of Roy Jones. I think he kind of models certain aspects of his fighting style after him.

This video has a lot of awesome head and foot movement. Reminds me of Silva

Anderson used a classic bob and weave chael wiffed and Anderson ended the fight. Its Classic Anderson Silva. When you make a mistake in the cage and Anderson is standing infront of you he makes you pay. Discredit his win all you want with your "If only Chael had not made this mistake or that mistake" truth is he had two chances both times he made a mistake and both times he got finished. In my mind Anderson owns Chael just as much as he owns Rich.

Cheal doesnt throw jabs, he uses jabs to telegraph the big punches following the jabs, anderson knows this. Anderson probably didnt intentionally trip Sonnen but definitely never ducks that far down on a whim.

Do you ever see anderson sway an inch more than he needs to? Fuck no, thats how you counter effectively. Anyone can run and dodge, very few can move one inch out of the way, keep the feet set and counter hard at your oponents most vulnerable.

Almost noone else in MMA I've ever seen has enough confidence in their finishing skills to improve their striking to that degree.

Sonnen didn't throw a jab. He threw a Left straight. He's a southpaw.

This...Anderson's knee hits Chael's knee (or thigh?) and causes him to fall. Otherwise, it just would've looked like a whiffed spinning backfist.

Chael slipped on andersons leg and fell before being crushed by a body knee.

Yea, that was kind of the point. There was no trip. Chael falling into Andy's knee caused a reaction that looked like a foot sweep.
