    Never seen this one before I wonder what weight they fought at? Silva wins this guy 9 out of 10 times right now. Silva, BJ Penn, and Fedor are the best fighters in the world.

    The video does cut off. I've been looking on the internet for this and I cant find anything, they are all erased. Its like the move is a government secret or something. This sucks, it must be a really good move to posterize Anderson Silva. If anyone can find a link, let me know.

    Nice, that move is sick. But I noticed that the ref stopped the fight before Anderson began to tap.

    Regardless Anderson was done. The heel hook is so powerful that just cranking an inch hurts like hell. The guy did it right and he deserved to win. Never seen that done in competition before.

    Watch the video again. As soon as he dropped Silvas right hand is tapping.
