The fact that I find this a revelation should give you a clue about my real level of inexperience. I assume that to anyone who knows anything about martial arts, my breathless announcement that "I've just discovered this guy called Anderson Silva and he is almost supernatural" would be on the order of saying, "I've just heard about this thing called the Internet and I reckon it has real commercial potential." But seriously, before today, I'd never heard of the guy.
I wonder why no one told me before? He has to be one of the most magnificently graceful and gifted athletes I've ever seen.
Oh, I see I'm not the only one to think of comparing him to Michael Jordan.
