Thatīs just the annoying part of achieving greatness.
If you decline a fight - criticized.
You accept a fight on short notice - criticized.
If you struggle to win against a underrated opponent or lose - criticized.
You dismantle this very opponent - criticized.

Big difference between mockering opponents and just being genious. Even Mike Tyson got a legion of critics for finishing fights too quick.

Too bad you canīt appreciate the best showcasing how far he is from everybody else.

By the way, Anderson is indeed smaller, older than Bonnar, who, in fact, never been stopped even by Jones. This is not fight promotion. This is the truth.

Congrats to Bonnar to man up and to Anderson, who did what he was supposed to, risking his win streak against a bigger zero to lose tough SOB when he could be just relaxing until 2013.

Bonnar was really taking it to Silva until about 4:00. He was beating him up pretty good against the cage, landed some good body shots and knees to the leg and even landed a good left hook and a few 1-2s, he was pretty aggressive and definitely played a Chael style gameplan.


Silva is a master finisher though.

Actually he won the second because he stuffed 3 takedowns in rapid succession, made Chael desperate, and then knocked him the **** out. So no he didn't win only because Chael slipped. He won because he's better and because the other guy finished the fight in a fetal position begging daddy to stop hitting him.

Your Anderson hate stinks of envy and butthurt. It is an unhappy perfume.

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

What made that knee lethal is Silva pushed Bonnar to the fence and when he came bouncing back he did it!

It's just like the WWE wrestling, when they push their opponents towards the ropes and when they come back they strike!

Did anyone think Anderson looked tired btw? He was breathing heavy a few times when they were clinched up on the cage.

I don't think I have anything to say that hasn't been covered in the first 24 pages lol.

Obviously there is a point where you cross the line of confidence and cross into cocky. Who really cares? He put on an amazing show in my eyes.

Great night of fights!
