It is pretty rare that discussion of a fighter attempting to bend the rules in an MMA fight necessitates a three-slide article, but Anderson Silva's performance at UFC 148 is an exception.

First, we will look at Silva's adventure with a Vaseline jar. 

Second, we'll examine Silva's holding of Chael Sonnen's shorts.

Third, we'll examine the knee that Silva landed on a grounded Sonnen, which signified the beginning of the end for the challenger.
