Gracie Breakdown: UFC 200 Anderson Silva vs. DC

UFC 200 was a benchmark event as the world’s premier mixed martial arts league is undergoing a change-up in ownership. Jon Jones impacted said event after being flagged for an anti-doping violation, thus being removed from the headline title fight against light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.

Stepping in on two days notice was UFC legend Anderson Silva moving up a weight class to challenge Cormier in a three-round tilt. Here is Rener Gracie and Frank Cucci, from Linxx Academy of Martial Arts in Virginia Beach, Virginia, providing a Gracie Breakdown of how Anderson Silva used punch block techniques to avoid critical damage and survive against a larger, better trained opponent.
