    Anderson Silva: 2 Amazing Quick Clips

    Anderson is on the winning end of one and the losing end of the other.

    Without even looking, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say the loss is the crazy scissors leg hold that had Anderson tapping even as it was being locked. If so, that was most definitely ridiculous. I can't say I saw it live or thousands of times, but I have seen it a good hundred. That's all I ever need to know about why I wouldn't fight MMA even if I was young enough to attempt it.

    You have to defend against the inconceivable.

    Edit: OK, have now watched them both. If you watch Silva's elbow about 5-7 times successively, it starts looking telegraphed. I started thinking to myself, "I would have seen that coming and had my guard high".

    Yeah.

    Right.

    I bought the DVD of the actual Pride event where Silva lost to the flying scissor-then-heel-hook.

    On the clip whose link I posted at the start of the thread, Josh Barnett is describing the action as Silva winning the fight up to the submission. But, live, the announcers were feeling all along that the other guy was winning by a small margin and that his spectacular finish was simply icing on his victory cake.

    I thought it was a pretty close fight upto the scissor.

    Anderson was hurting from the leg kicks though if I remember correctly, but doing the better work with his hands.

    Don't think he was quite polished then though, he improved a lot over the subsequent few years and really became a different beast, too bad he started his career so late, never got to see enough of his prime years.
