Not sure why people bash him for the Maia fight...still.
It was in the middle east. It was like 100 degrees. Penn lost as a 12-1 favorite. Things were cooky. Things were off. There was a full moon. He got sand in his eye dammit!
Yeah, I am Anderson cornerman and it was an off night for me. I really didn't like what he did but I fully understand why it happened, as I understand all the neg repercution that followed. Anyway, an off night. Water under the bridge. Anderson gave countless reasons to be a likable champion before and after that fight.
