      I would have preferred a bit more crucial detail to each match, Silva does a lot more precise work for each fighter being that each fighter was very experienced.

                  Ahh: the walking back strike and Superman punch...The combo is one of jabs, spinning back fist and uppercuts, primarily. Variations of it are good along with that pulling guard part. Interesting to see so many fighters from around the world utilize it. The over hand hard right was another.

                                  Let's be honest, Chris Weidman was at his prime, but he would have never beaten Silva that night in their first fight, if Silva wasn't off balance when he took that strike! Silva took an H Bomb from Dan Henderson, and ate it like a champ, but when he took that Weidman punch, he was off balance, which caused him to fall and then get Ko'ed on the ground. Let's not even talk about the leg break, because that was the end of his career right there; he has not been the same since then.

                                                                Anderson Silva was my favorite fighter to watch in his prime. It's sad to see those days are gone. His last fight against Israel Adesanya looked nothing like this. He's hesitant to throw anything and he almost looks like someone that's afraid to get hit with his hand movements every time Adesanya threw a feint. He honestly looked like he was just trying to survive to a decision. He only had brief moments of attacking in the second round that was reminiscent of his earlier years. When he did that, I thought he might get Adesanya in trouble, but he didn't stick with it. That being said, his presence was still enough to neutralize a lot of Adesanya's offense. Adesanya was hesitant and didn't put on the show he had promised. He didn't live up to his "last airbender" moniker. All in all, it was a boring fight with little action and mostly consisted of two fighters dancing and staring at each other. Adesanya was supposed to dominate Silva being the heavy favorite, and instead he gave a classic GSP fighting for points rather than a finish style fight. Actually they both were guilty of that.

                                                                  In saying that, was 234 a star-making moment for Stylebender, or was it more of a star-affirming moment for Anderson? It seems that the Spider came out of the contest with his being the higher stock.

He was unbeatable because back then all the ufc fighters were pretty much specialists. He was the future of mma. Then Anderson came along and changed Rich's mma career forever. In the 2nd fight they had, you can clearly see fear in Rich's eyes and wasn't the same mentally.
