Watch his fight against Jorge Rivera, Sparring with Big Nog on youtube, even this Gif of him training for Sonnen:

Show me actual fight footage of Silva taking "damaging punches before this fight. It's not a criticism. Not taking punches is the best defence possible. But for people to call me out on my comments, I felt they were just at the time.



I only seem him take shotd a few times and he showed an intollereance at the time.

His offence and defence is so amazing that he almost NEVER got hit, I was just suspect of how Sonnen, a guy who doesnt hit hard, hurt him on almost every punch. Sure Bonnar isnt a one punch KO guy, but Silva was taken them amazingly and asking for more, so he shut me the fk up in this fight lol.
He's been hit standing more than 4 times and he's only been rocked once. Jorge Rivera ripped into him with 5 or 6 massive hooks. Silva winked at him. Hendo landed flush on him. Did nothing. He's been hit plenty of times and only hurt once. After Chael hurt him he stood put his hands down and let him drill him 4 more times that did nothing.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Chael hurt him, Dan didnt land quite the "H-bomb", and I havent watched too much pre-UFC of any fighter.

Also, you think Spider has to fight a guy 13 years younger than him, and a weight class above, to prove he is the best. Obviously that is ridiculous hate for no reason. Just accept his skillset, enjoy that you watch the greatest live, and stfu.

ive said these words on here before. i agree. it always makes me think about why ppl like/dislike fighters

i actually made a topic about it on here about 5 years ago

when ppl go hunting for reasons to dislike anderson it makes me think they are just grandstanding, wanting to be different

whats funny is when i became an anderson/mma fan years ago i thought i was different because mma wasnt as big then


edit: sorry messed up the quote, responding to clydebank

Chael hurt him once. It's the only time I have ever seen Anderson hurt by a shot and I have seen every one of his fights. Pre Ufc and UFC era. His chin is probably the best in mma. It's absolutely insane.

Yeah I'm the opposite. I liked Anderson when he was on top, Lyoto when he was champ, Nog is a legend etc. When it comes to who is and who sint good imo, my opinion (ironically) isnt relevent. Anderson IS the best of all time. Fedor IS the second best. These are pretty much facts.

My only issue is with people that talk down on AS. Yes, he's a dick, fine, but dont diss his achievements. Anderson Silva KOs Bruce Lee in half a second, and he should be respected as the legend he is because we are the generation who will be telling the future about him. I hear about Don Frye etc. a lot, but Anderson is our generations #1, and it's down to us to pass on his skill level and name to the future because they will have a new star to compete with ours.

And honestly...his knees dipped for a split second - the he was fine, letting Chael tag him with shots for fun right after.

Awesome card, but I never understood why people gave Bonnar much of a shot. I mean the guy comes to bang, but it isn't like he is anywhere even remotely close to the same level Silva is at.

Bonnar did good the first 5 seconds by rushing silva but then it went down hill pretty quick.
