Just recently I got neg repped for saying Anderson Silva will lose to Marquardt because he nearly got tooled by Travis Lutter! I was pissed when this poster neg repped me for it. But after thinking about it for a while I realized he was right. 1. because it was a stupid and ignorant thing to say. I mean how do you get nearly tooled by somebody. That just says Anderson Silva did a really good job of defending himself against Lutter. I was praising him while critizing him at the same time! 2. Also, I was judging him from just that one fight he had with Travis Lutter and pretty much ignoring his victories outside the UFC. So he was right to neg repped me (Also I respect the fact that he left his name. Not to many posters would do that) because I was being a complete newb for not doing my homework properly.
Now this poster was giving all kinds of explanations on why Silva will beat Marquardt. One was that he was trained by the Nog brothers which tells you that he is good on the ground. 2. Another is that he thinks he is a better striker then Nate Marquardt. I mean look what he did to Rich Franklin. So I commend him for this reasoning!
Now this is the part that just flat out pisses me off. Now I mentioned this guy neg repped me for making an ignorant post. When asked why he thought Marquardt doesn't stand a chance his answer was: he couldn't even finsih Ivan Salaverry. Well hell neither could Matt Lindland. Does that mean Lindland, who is considered to be the no.1 middleweight, sucks ass! So this same guy who accused me of not doing my homework and judging Anderson based on one fight just went ahead and did the same damm thing.
He judge Nate Marquardt because of his boring ass fight with Ivan Salaverry. Never mind this guy was 7 time King of Pancrase, is skilled in BBJ, Japanese jiu-jitsu, Boxing, and Wrestling. Now he may not have been trained by the Nog brothers but he is still dangerous on the ground. Also he is very capable of doing some damage to Anderson Silva while standing. I'm not saying he's going to outstrike Silva but he is very capable of doing some damage while standing.
So to this poster that knows a lot about Anderson Silva but obviously knows sh*t about Nate Marquardt. I highly suggest you take your own damn advise and watch some of Nate Marquardt fights before you make stupid and ignorant comments like "Oh, he couldn't finish off Ivan Salaverry." Otherwise you'll just look like hypocrite who is suffering from nuthuggeritius.
Thank you for your time and I hope you all enjoyed my little rant!
