UFC 148 headliner and MMA superstar Anderson Silva is the focus of a new video promo from the UFC as they continue to hype us his forthcoming rematch with Chael Sonnen.

The 30 second video features footage of three of the Brazilian’s classic knockout victories in the UFC against Forrest Griffin, James Irvine and Vitor Belfort.

What it doesn’t show is how equally adept he his at finishing fights on the ground as his previous win against Sonnen along with others like Dan Henderson and Travis Lutter have shown.

With Sonnen almost certain to attempt to use his wrestling to try to grind out a victory on July 7th it’ll be interesting to see whether the champion can find the openings to use his deadly striking skills, or if he’ll once again have to dig deep into his box of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques in order to defeat him.

Check out the promo below.
