Okay guys this is just a sparring video from Black House MMA but what I want you to notice is around 2:18 when Anderson Silva has Lyoto in an (well in my gym we call it) electric chair. Notice how Lyoto slaps Silva’s leg just as he feels that Anderson is relaxing his feet. Now maybe this means nothing to you but to me it throws up some flags.
Anderson has been victim to heel hooks before and I think Lyoto as a sparring partner knows his weaknesses. Now just as he slaps the leg he transitions into a knee bar and as time just runs out Anderson taps to the submission. Right before the coach says “time” Silva breathes out and slaps Lyoto’s leg once in submission.
Now again maybe this doesn’t mean anything to you guys or maybe it does, but I would love to see Rousimar get in there with the champ one day. I would put some heavy money on that fight in favor of Rousimar.
