I don't get why non silva fans have a hard time understanding why he might be mad at the venue change.

Simply put:
-He is at home, gets to see his family
-Does not have to travel to train
-Fighting in his country (sense of pride)

Also why are people giving Anderson heat for questionably putting the event in jeopardy, when it was in fact Chael Sonnen who delay the rematch by getting suspended. This fight was suppose to happen early 2011. Say what you want about Silva's objection , but when he was fighting Vitor and Okami it was Chael SOnnen ass that was sitting at home. Had he been clean Silva would have fought him ages ago in a rematch.
