    I recall he had 2 sweeps that looked really easy slamming ESilva to the floor...don't recall which round...those were beautiful...

    Overeem did the same to Werdum. It seems like a lot of Brazilian fighters don't even really bother defending against takedowns if they're confident enough with their jitz. Examples include Werdum and Shogun.

    It's because when you get thai clinched you stop thinking about your feet and start focusing on defending knees and breaking the clinch.

    Also the control your opponent has on your upper body cannot be understated, wherever the head moves, the body will follow.

    I believe they were round 2.

    Did anybody else notice how floppy Erick Silva was? Why is he so floppy?

    Werdum seemed as nervous as Reem did to avoid the striking game as Alistair did the ground.

    Part III is what it's about. They both know what's up.

    I'll second the request, those were slick. Bumping with the only GIF I can find of the fight.
