Anderson is possibly the greatest mixed martial artist/performer in UFC history. He has used a "death knee" or knee to the solarlplex/liver in 2 straight fights...against chael and bonnar. Check out his former coach at Chute Boxe Master Rafael Cordeiro showing off his death knee during sparring. The last minute of the video shows 3 consecutive death knees. Also, check out how Cordeiro fights off the fence, makes people miss and uses insane angles. I am not at all saying he is responsible for how Anderson fights, but he did teach him from white to black belt at Chute Boxe and it's amazing to see the similar styles. Some people have said Anderson is showing off, but he considers himself and is considered by others to be an artist and that is how he expresses himself. Enjoy the video and sorry for the frat. War Anderson!!!

Cool to watch. Definitely seems like their styles are very similar. Why did Cordeiro stop fighting? Phone Post

did you go notice around the 30 to 45 second mark?  He rag dolls a guy and then how he chooses to fight with his back on the cage/fence?  

 

fyi some of the people in the video

 

flame shorts/tito ortiz shorts and headgear (mtv caged danger)

big guy at the end who gets the knee and stay down is eddie sanchez

Slow mo combo where he lands the punch kick and ducks to big punches is jake ellenberger

Fighting off the cage is against babalu

TJ Dillashaw has a few cameos

Matt Horwich gets lit up

Anderson Obviously is in there

I'm pretty sure Dan The Wolfman taught him that. He learned it from an old Russian carny. Phone Post

No offense to Master Cordeiro, who is awesome, but I doubt Anderson learned the technique that he is using in 2012 from a guy he hasn't trained under for more than a few weeks in the last decade.  Anderson left Chute Boxe back in 2003 and has really refined his style since then.  He is far more technical than the prototypical Chute Boxe Muay Thai brawler.

Gokudamus stole my name - Is Cordeiro also righthanded (like Anderson)?

good questions,.  hard to tell from the video.  he might be a south paw from the fighting style, and just teach the class orthodox.  Now it has me wondering as well.

Just thought it was interesting since he is one of Andersons original instructors
