beat Wanderlei in his prime... yeah, total pussy

 

I dont give a shit, Tito is a total douchebag. I was looking to see him get his head stomped by Chuck again. Especially for that outburst against Mark Coleman. Tito needs to keep his mouth closed.

and its people like yourself ,along with the fraternity kids all wearing Affliction tees and allover silver prints that make UFC wack today, youre too blood thirsty. I enjoyed watching the skill, you wanna see snapped elbows and men sleeping.

 

Well,,, there's website for the men sleeping part Im told.

 

i usually agree with you.

you seem to know what youre talking about.

but we must have been watching two very different fights if you enjoyed watching "the skill" referring to the silva fight.

that was the worst display of "fighting" i think ive ever seen from anderson, and that includes the two boring fights before griffin where both silva's opponents basically laid down on the mat and wouldnt stand up with him.

 

that flailing around shit was cool against forrest because silva brought the heat and smashed his orbital bone, actually FINISHING the fight and embarrassing griffin.

 

im sorry, but when you do that amount of showboating and you cant close, you look like a douche and you lose respect.

 

ps.

i agree with the affliction t-shirt comment, shit made me laugh.

 

but if i wanna see some grown folks dancing around, ill tune into kate gosselin on dancing with the stars.

Yea but sayWORD, I look at it like this and someone else brough thtis up, GSP was sitting not 10 feet away studying Silva, and you know if there was a solid 5 rounds of material from that fight GSP would be studying it till the day they both stepped in the ring. Silva knew within 3 rounds that the fight was his, so what if he didnt knock him out, Silva only threw a COUPLE 1-2 comboes for the whole fight, doesnt mean he cant fight, it means he chose not to for a reason. A reason I call strategy, why give 5 rounds of material for his next fighter to study? Let him study my old footage so he get over confifent thinking he knows all my tricks. Thats how I look at it. Imagine a promoter going up to Ali's corner inbetween fights and telling his team "I want a knock out, stop showboating". No one remebers the promoters, only the champs.

 

Remember that. And don't get me wrong, I wouldn't have minded seeing Silva hit him on the snooze button, but do you REALLY need to see that to say he's won? Hell no, every single time dude got knocked down he was scared to stand up and would do anything he could to wind the clock out while sitting on his ass, his stand up game sucked and his only trick was to HOPE he could get Silva on the floor. Which Silva knew, and as another strategy wouldn't give him that chance. I'm telling everyone here, Silva might not look like it but he's a smart fighter and is doing everything with reason. He might get caught up in the showboating but that's part of strategical warfare, head games and making an oponent feel like his every attempt is futile.

 

last note, he actually punched dude in the thigh at one point, Silva had zero respect for the ability of opponent and was a cat bored with his ball of string by the 3rd round.

 

Oh, 2nd to last note, BOTH these fighters where from Brazil, so Im pretty sure there was a lot of pride going on behind the scenes btwn these two, as to lead up to the showboating part.

To all these people trying to say BJ should have gotten the decision:

1) I am a BJ fan and I am disappointed but I believe Edgar won it legit.

2) I don't know why people quote websites that show computer programs that pretend to be judges. It's not all math. The judges are sitting at octagon side and are human and are swayed by the shit that goes down live.

3) "Striking, grappling, aggression, and octagon control": those last two are pretty subjective, but the way Edgar was in and out picking the engagements clearly favors him in those two facets.

4) BJ has a history of raw deals from judges. I don't think he got a raw deal this time. But if he knows he hates what happens when he leaves it to the judges, he shouldn't leave it to the judges. He wasn't aggressive enough, didn't take enough risks. Even his corner told him to take it to the ground after the third round and he either didn't or couldn't.

 

Edgar won it legit. Not by much. And I think the judge who scored it 50-45 was a little overboard. But props to Edgar for pulling it off.

I don't want to see any more champions playing it cautious (or showboating for five rounds). They need to smash. Show why they're champions. I'm not bloodthirsty, but this is cage fighting, and they score you on aggression, so be aggressive.

Twonpoo, I don't buy the 5 rounds of material theory. He could have knocked Maia out using his least favorite technique in round 1 and given GSP nothing. And I would have respected him more. I know he's a beast and I know he's smart but I still give him a D minus for sportsmanship.

^^exactly cracked.

ive followed silva since pride, ive got mad respect for what he can do in the ring.

and i dont think anyone, even a fourth grade kid, needed silva to knock maia out to be able to distinguish the winner.

like you said, the fight was over in the first couple rounds as far as most people are concerned.

i think his antics were less about strategy, and more about silva being generally bored and dissatisfied with his recent opponents.

 

the quality of opponents is partly dana whites fault, as his contract policies are less than desirable for many talented fighters, who seek out less constricting deals elsewhere. plus white has a history of shortchanging talent even when it has proven itself (dan henderson everybody?).

 

bottom line:

silva outclassed dude in every way but class itself. i mean i would understand if it was a true grudge match between two fighters with a history of hating each other. maybe a little strutting in the ring would be humorous, even entertaining. but this is seemingly becoming a habit with anderson, and im not fond of it.

 

one thing is for sure,

if the ufc continues to allow this bullshit to be accepted, frat dudes with affliction t-shirts wont be the worst thing about mma for long.

but in a match against another Brazilian from another school who might have a history of whatever prior, he embarrassed Maia for 5 rounds not allowing him to do anything, that's sorta my point, even without abusing him like the first 3.5 , he still was a spider with his prey unable to do shit in his web. He embarrassed his opponent. Broke his nose and made him dance around bleeding with closed up eyes. Dude is probably mentally scarred now. LOL

 

and what do you mean you don't buy the" 5 rounds of material" are you kidding? GSP was the only other UFC fighter to fly out to Dubai, you think that was a coincidence? Dubai isn;t Vegas, or Portland where you just happen to fly in and out for a fight. GSP is in study mode, if you don't get that, then I really shouldn't bother explaining professional fight strategies against other title holding opponents with you. lol.

i think Penn deserves a rematch. he had the title for a long time, he deserves it, but unless he gets his shit str8, Edgar is going to ride that wave a bit.

Yeah, I get it fine. You didn't listen at all. Silva destroys Maia in 1 round and does it without using any of his favorite techniques. Then GSP has nothing relevant to study.

he can study all he wants. his jaw is suspect and silvas stiking is pin point. he'll try and stand up long enough to set up his shot and ride out his wrestiing like the last 3 of his fights. we all see how that work out for maia.lololololololoollolololo

no doubt! george has the best wresting in the ufc hands down. im just saying silvas stand up make anyone one demensional. he has to exchange punches to get off his shot. eating a couple shots before gets within shooting distance. thats all im saying.

No, you still don't get what I'm saying, or even what I know, so I'll start over.

 

1. GSP is in study mode: Agreed. Any smart fighter studies his next opponent's fights.

2. Silva is smart: Agreed. He doesn't want to show GSP his A-game.

3. Silva doesn't need his A-game to beat Maia: Agreed.

4. Silva should dance around for five rounds instead of finishing Maia: DISAGREE.

 

My point is, Silva could have destroyed Maia in one round with his B-game. That way he wins the fight, keeps GSP in the dark about his A-game, and keeps the respect of fans who think like I do.

But Silva is the 800-pound gorilla who doesn't give a fuck what I think, so he did it his way. Which won him the fight and gave GSP nothing to study. I just don't like his style even if he accomplished those two objectives.
