Anderson Silva is arguably the greatest mixed martial artist to compete in a ring,cage or Octagon™. If he’s not the greatest, then he’s number 2 or 3. We would tentatively say the 3 greatest mixed martial artists to compete are 1. Sakuraba 2. Fedor and 3. Anderson Silva. #’s 2 and 3 are interchangeable, but #1 is rock solid for us. Despite the arguments for or against who is the ‘greatest’ Anderson Silva has dominated for many years, in a few weeks he faces his arch rival in Chael Sonnen, the only man to really put a beating on the champ since his debut int he Octagon™.
Anderson is an enigma. Dangerous, fluid and awe inspiring in the cage. Soft spoken, possibly arrogant and fiercely Brazilian outside of the cage. What makes this great champion tick? Well, with his ‘Like Water’ documentary we got to see a little bit of what makes The Spider so incredible. Below is a little bit more.
Watch and learn.
