Not at all. If guys like Stephen Bonnar are dumb enough to get drawn into the strike for strike match it's their fault, Silva stands there with his hands down and Bonnar doesn't close the gap, not Silva's fault. Silva just draws guys into standing in his range by giving them opportunities to hit him, Bonnar should have been hugging him for 3 rounds to get the lay'n'pray but he did exactly what Okami did.

You can not fault Silva for using a strategy that tricks fighters into playing right into his hands. Sure it was cocky as hell, but don't stand 2 feet in front of him and you won't get kneed to death. Yeah you have to take the fight to him to win, but do it like Sonnen did in the first fight by allowing no distance ever. Bonnar stood right in front of him trying to tag him and that's exactly how Anderson beats guys. If you go into the cage and get tricked into trying to strike with Silva that's a reflection of how good Silva is. He goes over and makes sure the guy is ok afterwards, he's not doing it out of disrespect, he does it because people are dumb enough to think they can rock him standing.

Another reason you can't fault him is because if he didn't do what he did we wouldn't know how good he actually is, if he would have gone in and circled and been afraid of the takedown the fight would have been mediocre. Silva proved to the world that yes, he is the best, he will give himself a huge disadvantage and turn it into a trap. I'd rather watch a cerebral chess match where he completely outsmarts his opponents than a careful boxing match where he does what we already know he could do.

Did he embarrass Bonnar and was it unacceptable? I say Bonnar embarrassed himself by getting tricked just like Okami did. I don't get how people don't appreciate Anderson's performances, he's the best in the world at the sport we love to watch. Nobody does what he does, I don't even see how Bonnar's ego would be hurt so why bother being mad.

Stop being a jackass... Silva is the greatest fighter ever in the UFC. I don't understand people who just sit behind their keyboard and hate because some one else is successful... and they are just stuck living in their parent's basement.

It's not because his sucsess it's because he acts treats his opponent like trash in the fight. Hes does not act like a man he's acts like a child who bullies others because they cant fight back.!

incorrect, they can fight back. Bonnar was bigger, stronger and slower than Silva and gets into the who is faster competition. He had the chance to impose his strength advantage for 3 rounds yet he didn't, that is not Anderson's fault. He didn't treat his opponent like trash, Bonnar had his opportunity, he simply blew it like Okami by standing in front of Silva, not Silva's fault.

Silva can act professional though and not dance infont of the other fighter or put hi hands down and embaris the opponent.

Lol the dude has his hands down and is allowing you to hit him. Is it his fault that he is just a lot better than his opponent? It's a fight they can fight back, i cant believe people actually are upset over the fact that one guy talent is above everyone else. Its like people hating Michael Jordan for being so damn good. How many people did that man school on the basketball court.

Pure bs. He and his opponents are both professional fighters on the biggest stage in the world. He goes in there every time to prove he is the best and he does it by playing into his opponent's strength. That is the opposite of a bully. A bully would not put himself in a disadvantage just to prove a point. Anderson will.

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

It's not being unprofessional though, it's strategy. Bonnar's one and only chance was to impose his size by laying on Anderson and tiring him out, Anderson lowers his hands to trick his opponents. Once they hit him they think they have him beat so they will just stand in front of him then it's Anderson's match to lose. If it were unprofessional he'd be doing what he did in the Leites or Maia fight where he refused to engage. He doesn't treat them like trash, it's a fight, and it's Bonnar's fault for being so dumb as to think he could stand in front of Anderson for anything more than 3 seconds at the beginning of each round.

It's like putting your head in a lion's mouth then being pissed if it bites your head. Don't stand in front of Anderson Silva and he won't clown you, it's his playtime, he doesn't disrespect he's merely having fun.
