Can't seem to find it though.

Believe into the - "Bonnar had never been stopped" hype all you want, but if you honestly thought this fight would have ended any other way you're nuts.

Give Silva JBJ, and then I will be entertained.

Silva fighting anyone not named JBJ is pointless.
So why did you watch that fight then¿ Were you forced to watch the fight¿ Bound to a chair, with tape holding you eyelids open¿ It was the last fight on that card, so you could easily have switched your TV off after the Nogueira fight without being afraid of missing a different fight, but obviously you didn't even though all the "non entertaining" arguments were known to you before.

It's really kind of weird to know that you won't enjoy that fight but to watch it nonetheless by your own choice and then bitch around.

I just saw this. Holy sh*t! The antics were a bit disrespectful but smart at the same time. What better way to break your opponent mentally than humiliate him in his own aspect?

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.

Toxic you are a good guy but this statem,ent is funny really... I might suggest we force Silva go go on Bully Beat Down and learn his lessons...


Really this match was not a thought out evenly matched gem, but rather a quick thrown together debacle. There was some entertainment value and probably insured the event would make some money. We as fans are a bit lucky that we did not lose this event as well.
