Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Check Out the First Preview of ‘Anderson Silva: Like Water’

(Video courtesy of YouTube/00Alistair00)

If you haven’t heard the news, Anderson Silva has a new documentary called, “Like Water,” which set for release later this month at the Tribeca Film Festival in Manhattan. The name of the film is taken from a famous Bruce Lee quote as an homage to the world’s most famous martial artist who was a huge influence to The Spider’s MMA career.

Here’s the synopsis:

“Anderson Silva is the longest-reigning UFC Middleweight Champion and one of the greatest mixed martial arts fighters of all time. This behind-the-scenes documentary gives a surprising look at the man behind the fighter and the dedication and commitment it takes to stay at the top. From Silva’s life in Brazil with his wife, three sons, and two daughters, to training with his team in Los Angeles and Miami, first-time filmmaker Pablo Croce peels back the layers of an ultimate fighter to reveal the heart of a champion.

A man of few words, Silva does not shamelessly play into the media hype machine—although he is continuously taunted by opponents who do. He aligns more with the philosophy of Bruce Lee than Muhammad Ali, and is pound for pound just as effective. Confusing to promoters and opponents, Silva’s own psychological game is a mystery, but perhaps it is just because his path is more about the simplicity of hard work and the quest for perfection. Croce’s hard-hitting documentary exposes the unseen side of Ultimate Fighting and culminates in one heart-pounding fight that signifies more than just another championship.”

Man, there are a lot of good MMA documentaries these days. Jens Pulver has one,  Jon Fitch has one, Evan Tanner has one. We also got word last week that a television documentary about Alistair Overeem called “Alistair the Great” is in the works and will air on a yet-to-be-named network later this year.

If you’re going to be in the New York area that week and you want to see the doc, you can purchase tickets for one of the three showings of “Like Water” HERE beginning April 18.

can't wait til we get all that, RWilsonR. unfortunately, the fear-mongering, immigrant-hating, environment-raping, poverty-dispensing right-wing politicos in this country are making it hard to have that utopia...

You obviously didn't come to Wisconsin.

It's that lazy-ass, siesta taking, warm beer drinking, smelly cheese eating culture that is the reason you have to come here to find a job. But don't worry - we are working hard to Europeanize our culture. We should hit your static levels of unemployment and overreaching bankrupting government just about the same time that history of your's is banned by sharia law.

This looks interesting and I like the change of perspective: a lot of people go to the USA out of necessity (work etc) rather than because they particularly want to. I spent a year working in the States and had some good experiences there, but overall was happy to return to Europe where we have things like history, culture, great beer, nice coffee and 100’s of varieties of cheese.

Maia is totally presenting his butthole to Anderson. Like a bitch in heat.

That Chael fan's teeth looked rotten and black.

love the sonnen fan at the end. looks like one of the dudes that were cheering for him at the bar that night. they sure left pissed.

@ irisddd - I believe you. I trust you. I'd like to order an Eastern European personal sammich maker. Maybe something from the double-D line. Do you have something high quality and reasonably priced that might fit my needs?
BaghdadBob- April 13, 2011 at 8:50 pm
I wonder if the movie shows Silva to be even more of a lunatic dick-head than we already know him to be.

Who reviewed this? Wrong wrong wrong...this is the Chael Sonnen movie "Like a Boss"....that's the way he tells it anyways.

The greatest fail is epic fail.
Spicymeatball- April 13, 2011 at 7:19 pm
Still looks cool.

That screen cap gives Silva the greatest bowl cut of all time.
RwilsonR- April 13, 2011 at 6:01 pm
I only hate the guy because of how great he can be, and then chooses not to be. But there is no doubting that when Anderson wants to, he has an unequaled brilliance inside the cage.

The greatest dream is no dream.

Anderson is on a complete different level than 99% if professional fighters living today. He see's moves before they happen and has arguably the best pure striking technique of any mma fighter today. Hate all you want but he is the TRUTH.

Anderson Silva just gets more and more perplexing as time goes on, and this film looks to be muddying the water even more. The quest for perfection? I find it hard to believe that the Griffin/Belfort fights are part of the same "quest" as the Maia/Leites fights.
