This impressive fight shows how elusive and versatile Anderson Silva is. There is no doubt that he is the most creative striker among MMA fighters. His accuracy and the unpredictability of his strikes make him a lethal weapon on the octagon.
At his book "The Mixed Martial Arts Instruction Manual: Striking", Anderson describes how he first saw the Lead Reverse Back Elbow move in a Thai action film called "Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior" starring Tony Jaa, a Thailand Muay Boran master (an ancient Muay Thai style) who was considered to be Bruce Lee's successor.
He decides that he's going to use it in his next fight and his trainers tell him to quit wasting his time with stupid movie moves that are never going to work. So he goes home and gets his wife to hold the pillows for him while he secretly practices the move hundreds of times. Then he unleashes it in Cage Rage 16 - Critical Condition that took place in the United Kingdom in 4/22/2006, resulting this famous and classical KO victory over Tony Fryklund, what makes his reaction and victory dance at the end of the bout priceless.
Enjoy the combat!
