For me Silva's stand up is characterised by the timing of his strikes. He has excellent ability to put his strikes between the opponents.

He manages this by controlling the distance, his KO of Griffin demonstrated this clearly. He made Griffin chase him, fitted punches between Griffins flailing from distance, and hit caught him for the ko when Griffin was off balance. Exquisite.
