Silva managed in one round, what JBJ couldn't do in 3.

That's impressive! Still props to Bonnar for stepping up, that's balls for ya!

Silva is like Chael really, only he does his mind games in the cage. Silva was just proving to Bonnar that he had no chance first he defends the takedown, then he lets him work against he cage....then he allows him free shots on his mug - takes the fight out of people.

Yeah I'm sure that was a major psyche blow. While he was on the cage with bonnar on him he was relaxed as ever. Reminds me of a calm Fedor.

BTW nice sig

This isn't a football game, this is a cage fight, Bonnar was a mid level semi-retired light heavyweight with no knockout power, anyone who thought this was competitive was either high or just got into the UFC like a week ago and bought into all the "Anything can happen" marketing.
Anything CAN happen in a fight dude. Hell...not even in just a fight, even though it's certainly heightened. In all of sport.

Silva is a bully, its really that simple. He may be the GOAT but the man doesn't need to clown the guys who step in the cage with him to prove it.
Actually he kind of does, it makes his opponents hesitate and overthink what they are doing. Anderson is a master at making his opponents make mistakes and then capitalizing on them. He did it yet again tonight...

good lord.

He kneed him in the chest. Bonnar went down with gloves up to protect his face from punches/elbows. Silva hammered on him until the ref stopped it... likely where the cut came from...

were you watching on a 13 inch black and white tv?

Lmao at being a bully in a fight haha.

But anyways, Anderson dropping his hands showed me personally something different. I had said earlier that his chin is suspect, because the only times he was challenged in strikes was in the first Sonnen fight when he was off. He was hurt a few times before being taken down. It's like he read my post, knew I liked Nick Diaz, and said "Fine then, no hands, just face, take that ClydeBlitz!".

No one beats AS! Greatest fighter ever to walk the planet. If you're hating the win, just stop and think that you just watched the best there ever was live in your living room. When you father said "Mike Tyson isnt shit against Rocky Marciano", you can reply "No one is shit against Anderson Silva".
