Anderson Silva is a mixed martial arts fighter; one of the best fighters in the world. In a fight 2 years ago he was getting beat. For nearly 5 rounds he was punished by his opponent. Relentlessly taken down, elbows and fists to the face and body. More than most could withstand. But nearly 5 rounds doesn’t win a fight. In the last minute, Anderson saw an opening and because of his ability to keep going when it seemed hopeless, he was able to choke out his opponent to win the fight.

“No one will hit you harder than life itself. It doesn’t matter how hard you hit back. Its about how much you can take and keep fighting; how much you can suffer and keep moving forward. That’s how you win.” – Anderson Silva

I love fighting.

  1. I watched Anderson Silva’s documentary, “Like Water.” Very interesting. He seems to have a very genuine & personal relationship with God. He’s got his priorities straight.

  2. “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body.”

    “Trading My Sorrows”
    – Darryl Evans

    I’m trading my sorrows.
    I’m trading my shame.
    I’m laying them down for the joy of the Lord.

    I’m trading my sickness.
    I’m trading my pain.
    I’m laying them down for the joy of the Lord.

    Yes, Lord
    Yes, Lord
    Yes, Yes, Lord

    I am pressed, but not crushed
    Persecuted, not abandoned
    Struck down, but not destroyed
    I am blessed beyond the curse for his promise will endure
    And His joy’s going to be my strength
    Though the sorrow may last for the night
    His joy comes with the morning

  3. There’s Anderson “The Spider” Silva, John “Bones” Jones, Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida, Benson “Smooth” Henderson, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Stefan “Skyscraper” Struve, Roy “Big Country” Nelson and even Vladimir “The Janitor” Matyushenko.

    Every exceptional fighter needs a ring name. Keeping in mind that “Natural Born Killer” is already taken, what would be a good UFC ring name for Tara Maier?
