No shit, he's a disrespectful **** who couldn't beat Anderson with roids and a broken rib for Silva...pathetic
Obviously missed the interview where he explained he had no problem with Brazil, only the fakes who dipped out of the country, dropped all of their winnings in the US, bought a mansion stateside and haven't looked back. He even accepted a Brazilian flag as a sign of goodwill and said he would treasure it.
The guy is a marketing genius. People like Dan Hardy, Chael Sonnen, and the Diaz brothers build amazing hype for their fights. They sell their events. Why can't people understand that?
On a side note, I sent Chael a direct message on twitter before his Stann fight and he replied back with a genuine, thought out message. I essentially wished him good luck in his fight, he replied back with "Thanks I'm going to go out there tonight and put on a show for you and my fans." I DM other fighters occasionally on twitter, no re-tweet and no response, ever. I get a vibe of someone who has made a mistake and regrets it, but just because he did make that mistake doesn't mean he is going to stop marketing the way that has worked for him in the past.
