Great. He's a warrior and has a ton of heart. Too bad he's never beat anybody with half the skill of Silva.

Lets see - losses to;
Machida
Griffin
Evans
Griffin
Jones
Coleman
Soszynski

semi-notable wins against;
Ebersole (lol)
Jardine

It was not "fun". It was the GOAT dominating a nobody. A fight put together to please Brazilian fans.

Silva should fight JBJ, or retire. There's nothing left for him. There's plenty of fights left for GSP at WW (Condit, Diaz, Fitch, Hendricks, Kampmann, etc)

Correction. You didn't think it was fun. Everyone else did. Having your opinion is great but you're not going to convince us that we didn't enjoy a fight we did enjoy.

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

I have no idea why people are hating on Silva for clowning Bonnar? Like really have you guys not been paying attention for the last six years? Remember Jorge,Forrest,Maia,Letis?

The man is just that damn good, I'm sure if any other fight can do that stuff they would. Why don't you hate on Dave Herman for smiling in there?

Good fight for Bonnar to retire on.

Maybe because he was expected to clown on Bonnar?

I have been paying attention for the last six years. He's the GOAT and he was expected to destroy Bonnar. Bonnar hasn't beat anybody notable in his entire career (please tell me who Bonnar has beat). Silva beat up on a can... that doesn't make for an exciting fight. It means Silva beat up a can.

That's not exciting.

Yeah he was expected to beat Bonnar, I'm sure the majority of the people who watched the fight expected it to be a one side beat down. For me it was an exciting fight as you get to see Anderson Silva show case his skills. Here is the scary part, Bonnar has faced: Jones,Forrest,Evans,Machida,Coleman,etc...sure they whooped his ass, but none of them made it look as easy as Silva did. Even if he is a can, nobody makes beating up a can look effortless as Silva.

At the end of the day watching Anderson Silva fight is an event, as I don't think there will even be a fighter like him again.

Can we stop this Bones being number one p4p bullshit now? LHW isn't a better division than MW anymore and hasn't been for a while and Anderson is clearly more skilled.

I don't know what people are crying about with the self imposed handicap. It made the fight more entertaining and it is up to Bonnar to make it so he can't do shit like that. It isn't even taunting; you don't have to move backwards to dodge if you can dodge the strikes by moving your head and moving to the side.

The way Andy trashed Bonnar was beautiful and what I expect out of the GOAT.

This, If Bones could go to HW and handle Cain, Cormier, JDS and Werdum then he'd be no.1 p4p, but he will never beat any of them.
