I couldn't disagree more on two counts.
1. I don't see the point of the knee hitting Chael in the face at all. If it did, he would be missing teeth. That knee was full force and there wasn't a mark on Chael's face to suggest a knee of that power hit him square in the face. If it did, his face would leave no doubt by it's injuries, and yet his face did leave a doubt. Because it had no injuries consistent with a knee of that power making contact.
2. How the hell do you know what Silva was intending to do? In fact you don't. I find it hard to believe he intended to hit him in the face, but instead, landed a perfectly aimed knee to the center of his chest.
What's more likely, he aimed for the face and missed by landing a perfectly placed shot to the chest? Or the most accurate fighter in UFC history landed a knee exactly where he intended, which was to the chest?
The answer is obvious to all non-bias observers.
Firstly, I didnt say the knee hit him in the face hard... simply that it did hit him in the face.
Secondly, I don't know. That's why I prefixed my comment with "Thinking about it...". I was merely talking out loud about what I was "thinking".
Thirdly, there you go with the "bias" comment again. If you think I'm a Chael fan you really need to pay more attention.
All in all, I'm quite flattered that you would take so much interest in my personal opinion. I wasn't engaging anybody. I simply saw the gif and thought "Wow... I might be wrong about the knee
". I decided to share my thoughts. Thats it. That is what you call "unbiased"... seeing as I usually polish Andersons testicles daily.
I'm 100% not interested in getting forensic with anybody about it.
