Anderson Silva Film to Premiere in April

A film about the Ultimate Fighting Championship's middleweight champion will have its debut next month. This year's ESPN/Tribeca Sports Film Festival will include the worldwide premiere of Like Water, a documentary about Anderson Silva, according to a list released Monday. The festival runs from April 20 through May 1 in New York. Filmmakers followed Silva last year as he prepared for his Aug. 7 fight with Chael Sonnen at UFC 117. During that training, Silva injured his ribs, an incident addressed by the documentary, according to UFC President Dana White. The Sonnen fight proved to be the most difficult bout of Silva's UFC career. The challenger controlled the action on the ground for most of five rounds before succumbing to Silva's triangle choke with less than two minutes remaining. Specific movie times haven't been released yet.
