One of the greatest strikers of all time training with one of the greatest coaches/teachers of all time.
Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva in his prime was probably the most talented striker the UFC ever had. This man could do it all: insanely high striking accuracy, pinpoint punches, devastating knees, unreal timing, an amazing ability to bob and weave.  When he was on fire he didn’t just beat opponents: he broke them and systematically dismantled them, and left them slumped unconscious on the canvas.

Terrible. Price gouging combined with high pressure sales tactics. First these pirates come and charge me $550 to switch out a $10 thermocouple and install a $20 thermostat (which took about 30 minutes). Then as soon as their service guy leaves their salesman comes by and tries to give me a scare-tactic high-pressure close on buying a new furnace from them right away. Threatens to shut off my furnace and report me to the authorities unless I pay them to do more work on my furnace. I'd rather heat my house with my electric stove for the whole winter than call these guys again.
