Anderson Silva Like Water

 

I was lucky enough to be able to watch this film on a preview disc distributed to DVD/video stores across my country. I am a long term fan of UFC and have been watching the UFC events since the beginning, starting with the small amount of rules, being an underground brutal competition of warrior vs warrior without weight divisions and regulations featuring fighters such as Royce Gracie, Ken Shamrock, Marc Coleman etc. However little did i ever think about the actual person fighting in front of me.

 

What this Documentary offers is a first hand account and journey into the life of champion fighter Anderson Silva.

 

The Documentary starts at the time of the controversial UFC 112 fight between Anderson Silva and Demian Maia and follows the fall out that followed with what some people considered a disappointing performance and the leading up to the next title defense event at UFC 117 against Chael Sonnen.

 

It goes beyond the octogon and delves into the complex life of a world champion fighter looking to redeem himself in the eyes of the public and his employer and the family man behind the fighter. Giving a good insight into the comradarie within the fighting community especially within specific fighting camps/gyms.

 

Overall A very good film Next time i watch a Anderson Silva fight i'll have a different mindframe.

James Te Huna-killer

Perosh was a surprising win, so was Kampmanns last second submission

Dunno about Johnson/Mccall, pretty unpopular decision, I just wanted to see Johnson get the win cause I can't hack showboating faggots twirling their lil mo's and wearing fedoras

A little showy perhaps, but he put his work in before UFC, and he was completely cheated on that decision in spite of getting rocked once or twice during that fight. I kind of wanted Kampmann to win, good thing he got his bread and butter at the last second.

First of all dana white has already said that there will never be a female division in the ufc. That being said zuffa does own strikeforce and they do you have females.

 

There was absolutely nothing boring about rousey vs tate. And clearly there needs to be a banner under which females can fight, and s trikeforce has had it for years now and it's been profitable for them. Carano was always fun to watch, and tate always brings it. And now rousey has a 5 fight win streak.

 

Basically, i aint mad.

The main event wasn't bad but if anybody seen the prelim fight between Sarah Kaufman vs Alexis Davis there is no way in hell someone would change the channel in the middle of that battle or compare it to lingerie football or mudwrestling... So far all the girl mma fights have been just as entertaining as the rest, in fact some of them are better! I gots no prob watching them at all...

^^To quote someone 'don't leave it in the judges hands', this is why, complete thing reeks of bulllshit to me.

Mccall coulda ended it in the last round instead of showing off being flashy, this is what happens. Also Dana White must use the word rematch as much as he uses the word fuck these days

past his prime, slower, fatter and would get mopped up by younger fighters with better stamina. I love Fedor no homo just like the rest of us, but if youve watched him fght for more then 5 yrs youve seen his athletics drop tremendously like a pitbull with his nits cut. Hes just not mentally or physically where he was 5 yrs ago. woulda shoulda coulda...

The comparison doesn't work dude. The wnba is slow. It's not exciting. The scores are low. No one can dunk. THe only time strikeforce is showing female fights it's ether a title or contention match. Just as many fights end in taps or KOs. There are just as many exciting fast paced matches as the male fights.

 

If you're a fan of actual mma, then you'll like the matches. As several people here have already said, both matches on saturday were fucking fun to watch.

 

If you're just fly by, ed hardy wearing, affliction cologne having bro, then no you probably won't see how good most of those female fights have been lately. It's whatevs, you're entitled to your opinion.
