Silva does it again. I was always aware of the fact that he's the GOAT but I wasn't really a fan of his. That has changed tho and he is simply awsome.

How can ppl support Chaels xenophobic stupid fake-wrestling smacktalk, and then be mad at Anderson for clowning ppl in the actual ring. Not to mention Anderson actually wins his fights.

Bonnar had no buisness being in there with him, and that's what happens, you look like you're not even a professional fighter. Don't blame Silva, blame his opponents.

Great fight & very entertaining.

Anderson almost looked disinterested the entire fight to me honestly. Up until that final like 20 seconds when he turned it on, landed the knee,and finished it he pretty much just defended everything Bonnar did.

It's just like the WWE wrestling, when they push their opponents towards the ropes and when they come back they strike!
Hahaha...funny analogy cuz it's true. The recoil effect increased the momentum two fold. That knee was like an arrow that shot through the solar plexus crumpling em. You could see the pain instantly on Bonnar's face.

Bonnar did exactly what I said he was going to do. Now if I can only find my quote somewhere here on this thread.

Entertaining fight! Props to Bonnar for taking the fight and even more so for the GOAT. They saved the main event!

Dana being Dana though, always trying his best to give the fights the fans want to see. Arrogantly laughs at the thought of a Diaz/Silva fight - books Stephan Bonnar fight.

Cheers Dana.
Nick is a WW... He could have fought at MW. However, this fight was on short notice so I doubt that Anderson could have made weight without suffering to do so. That's the only reason he fought at 205 this time anyway.

Anderson was game for Diaz, he was up for the fight. He would have made MW no problem.

Dana had other plans.

I have a link here which says that Ed Soares was definitely open to the fight, but I'm sure I read an article a little while back where Anderson himself said he was open to it too.

Can't seem to find it though.

The UFC isn't going to put a suspended fighter on a card.

But they'll do their very best to put a man who has just been arrested for assault to fight in the octagon on the same night.

Dana's double standards are just too much.
