Ali vs. Foreman: sometimes teasing the opponent works

Anderson Silva was caught with a left hand to his chin last Saturday night.

The Spider was once again using his well known strategy of teasing the opponent to get inside his head and then strike.

It worked many times before, like the famous rematch with Rich Franklin.

It did not work with Chris Weidman.

Looking back, many fighters have adopted this strategy before and many had success doing it.

The video below is a great example of that.

On October 30, 1974, challenger Muhammad Ali faced world champion and undefeated George Foreman, in Kinshasa, Zaire.

The Rumble in the Jungle, as the bout was called, was a great display of how it’s possible to bring the opponent to your game and beat him while doing that.

Watch this amazing video with the highlights of that historical night.
