While most fans and members of the MMA world have harshly criticized Anderson Silva’s performance at UFC 112, one person was actually impressed with the way Silva fought.
The person defending Silva isn’t just some average Joe off the street either. It’s Greg Jackson, regarded by many as the best coach in mixed martial arts.
Jackson said on The Fight Show with Mauro Ranallo that he had no problem with Silva’s antics against Demian Maia at UFC 112.
“I actually really enjoyed the first part of the fight, with Anderson changing up his style, like he would do Machida, then he would kind of do the Diaz brothers’ thing, then Muhammad Ali,” Jackson said. “I was actually very entertained with all the different styles that he was emulating as he was going after him.
