I don't disagree, boxing being your best skill doesn't mean you should box with Anderson though. I guess what I mean is he should have relentlessly shoved Anderson around trying to weigh him down instead of standing there because the first case gave him a ~10% chance of winning whereas the second gave him 0%

I thought Bonnar should have went psycho and after the first combo, not stopped throwing combos. He might have landed something, he might have been KOed, but as I said from the start if he got into grappling and clinching he's trying to match skill for skill, in which he is bested in just about every area. He had to make it be a fighter vs a martial artist, and make it a brawl. Instead of he tried to clinch, annoyed Anderson, got clowned, and got KOed, all in the first.



Thanks to Ape for the sig.

No, of course not. It means that at some point you'll get aware that getting locked up in a cage with Anderson Silva was not the smartest thing to do

He's a masterful strategist who bates his opponents into his trap. It's not Anderson's fault that most of his opponents seem to lose all sense of a gameplan as soon as the door shuts. If you hesitate at all in the fight, he will take advantage of it and knee a hole in your chest / face.

Also; to quote Ben Fowlkes: "Don't throw spinning shit at Anderson Silva. Just don't."

Must have been Sonnen's advice



...something like "I swear, I almost got him with my spinning elbow!"

i see what a couple of yall are saying, but my point is... is his showboating really worth it? one day if he doesnt retire before then, it could bite him in the ass with someone that catches a solid shot with power. if anyone thinks he is unbeatable then they are retarded.
bumping this for some of those who said it'd never happen. called this shit months ago.

Im here, i stand by what i said back then too. Its up to the other guy in the cage to stop him doing it, if they feel so disrespected then knock him out...

Like Weidman did
