As much as I'd like to ask this on an already existing thread (like the GIF one,) it seems like one can never get opinions if they join a thread after the first page. That's one of the problems I think with forums these days... people just keep appending without reading the full thread so ppl like me who want replies resort to new threads. So anyway I replayed the GIF a few times. Yes I am an Anderson fan boy and can't help looking for + spins on anything he does BUT I'm open to at least reading other opinions. Seems to have gone down like this... Bisping throws a left, Silva sees it coming leans back and tries to counter with a wide swinging right. Bisings punch clips (I think a glancing blow) Silva's right ear. The combination of this strike, the momentum from Silva's missed right AND the fact that Bisiping's leg is crossed with his causes Silva to go off balance. He is returning to position and sees Bisping's right coming, twists his torso to put his left shoulder forward and block Bisping's strike with his left arm, which he succeeds in doing but has now left himself with his legs (I don't know the correct term but essentially in a position facing Bisping in a "ready to sit down" bad stance.) Bisping's left catches him, it's not a hard punch but it sits him down/causes him to fall on his ass. He seems to be completely aware and does not lose eye contact with Bisping. He throws a nice up-kick attempt as Bisping comes in; in fact it's about half a second to quick, it might have landed and done damage otherwise! Bisping is well controlled in Anderson's guard. The commentators are going nuts but really Bisping isn't landing anything except to the canvas. So essentially a very good exchange where I don't really see mistakes per se just Bisping getting the better of it BUT without delivering anything close to Anderson even momentarily going out. Didn't read?
