Lost in the obituaries for Affliction, trash talk fights and positive drug tests is the fact that in less than two weeks, Anderson Silva is jumping up a weight class to fight former light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin at UFC 101. He will truly test how great of a pound-for-pound fighter he is. Right at the beginning of the video, Silva is training by having a racquetball thrown at his head:
This sort of training helps Silva with his reflexes. So if you run into Anderson on the street, feel free to toss anything handy -- a phone, a wallet, a wrench -- at Silva. He will appreciate the help.*
*Cagewriter takes no responsibility for the pummeling that Silva will deliver to anyone who throws a wrench at him.
