Like Water, a fascinating and award winning film documentary, follows Silva as he prepares to crown his four-year run as the unbeaten king of the sport with a record 12th straight win in the UFC. With intimate access to Silva and his intense training, the surprising and inspiring man behind one of the greatest mixed martial artists of all time emerges. Like Water offers a unique perspective of the living legend as he trains with fellow fighters Lyoto The Dragon Machida, Junior Dos Santos, and Antônio Minotauro Nogueira, in preparation for his career defining title defence against challenger Chael Sonnen. Sonnen, a former champion wrestler, had many predicting that he is the one fighter who possesses the skill set required to defeat Silva. A man of few words, Anderson Silva walks the fine line between cockiness and confidence. A philosopher in spirit and dedicated family man, Silva s personality contradicts that of Sonnen s, who uses trash talking and intimidation to get under his opponents' skin. Balancing family and fighting; respect for the sport, and rage for his opponent; Silva s mind and body will be put to the test, as first-time filmmaker peels back the layers of an ultimate fighter to reveal the heart of a champion. Including highlights from his match with Sonnen, Like Water is the ultimate look at one of the greatest fighters of all time.
