Video: Anderson Silva Imitates Randy Couture


When we first saw that video of Anderson Silva‘s fighter impressions we didn’t think it was anything more than an amusing party trick. But it turns out that the Spider’s gift for mimicry has a real-world application: He can use it to impersonate people that his teammates will be fighting. The above clip shows Silva doing his best Randy Couture in a sparring session with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira before UFC 102. It’s just another reason why you’d want to be on Anderson’s team, rather than going up against it — though personally, we think Randy should sue Silva for libel over the way he threw those kicks at the 0:27 and 1:47 marks.

Semi-related: Anderson Silva’s dumbstruck reaction to Nate Marquardt calling him out at UFC 102, after the jump.

I thought that would have some real world applications when I saw the original (Silva's imitating).

Whoever made that GIF needs better "video to gif" converter software.

Did Joe Rogan loan Anderson his old broadcasting shirt?

I think I liek Silva more and more.

What a great reaction.

"What? Who? ME?! Why would he want to fight me? Oh, cause I'm the champ... thats right. I guess I'll kick his ass if that is REALLY what he wants."

Silva - "Can someone please translate what this motherfucker is saying for me?"

I would love to see Anderson Silva go out and beat his next opponent while impersonating him. That would be hilarious.
