  • Yeaahhh highly doubt there was anything "fishy" about it. He always acts like that, but this time he did it too much and vs the wrong guy and he got caught. I agree that because he was acting like a jackass too long, he didn't bring his best stuff. But that doesn't mean he purposely got his ass knocked out either. Also, he always says dumb shit after a fight. The only difference was that he lost and was trying to act like he didn't care because he was butt-hurt. He acted exactly the way I expected him to act after the fight. I didn't think it was mind boggling whatsoever.

    Weidman wants to fight him again, and I hope he gets the chance. Maybe Silva will bring his A game next time.

  • Just watched it myself. Some of the card fights were better. I like the stand up stuff. Especially kicks;this one guy completely flipped
    swinging both feet at his opponent. Ultimately he missed but he his balance was so good he just kept fighting after that cartwheel. Amazing.

    I hadnt seen any of Silva's act before this. I hope he ditches the showboating too..

I think he just got caught, he's old for a pro fighter and seriously shouldn't be out there with his hands down trying to clown on a dangerous fighter. I'm surprised it hasn't happened earlier to be honest, but the guy is/was that good.

    Also, for anyone that is in the camp of "well screw the UFC it's fixed, blah, blah, blah". Then it was never for you anyways. I'd figure most from that camp are into boxing, which is fine with me, but there are few things to point out. Boxing is a sport were fixing happens a lot and I don't dislike boxing personally I just think it's boring. MMA is more exciting and a lot more overall fighting skill is involved. To each their own.


    Thank you. If someone can say that fight was fixed, but not the fight vs. Forrest Griffin at UFC 101, I can tell they don't know anything about MMA. I ain't never seen someone get "knocked out" by a jab before. Forrest took one of Rampage's hardest uppercuts in the 2nd round in their fight at UFC 86, but Silva's jab knocked him out? LOL, ok.

    That's exactly the fight I was talking about earlier in the thread. Not only was it a jab, but Silva was actually STEPPING BACKWARDS as he punched. Two of the biggest hyped and extremely disappointing fights ever and Anderson was on opposite ends of them. Weird.
