UFC 153 in Tweets: Pros react to Anderson Silva's breathtaking knockout of Stephan Bo

Always love hearing what the pros think. Here's some funny comments, reactions, and former foes chiming in.

There's greatness, and then there's all-time, historic, inarguable greatness. What we witnessed on Saturday night falls into the latter category.

Much in the same way a cat might play with it's food before devouring it, Anderson Silva effectively allowed Stephan Bonnar to throw everything he had at him for four minutes, before deciding it was time to end the games and flooring Bonnar with a hellacious knee to the solar plexus. All in all, it was it was 280 seconds of pure, unadulterated artistry, and just further evidence of why Silva makes the short list of greatest fighters to ever live.

And to no one's surprise, Silva's fellow fighters were just as stunned as the rest of us.

That was ******* hilarious during the fight when Goldie and Rogan were talking about Anderson having the second best TDD in the history of division and then when they found out it was Tavares who had the best, Goldie was all "That's why I didn't know!"

Bonnar is really tough but I think Anderson is much more technical superior

I think Anderson vs Bonnar is gonna be like was Anderson vs Griffin. Who of you guys agree with me?

Dana White ‏@danawhite
Bonnar is bummed out and embarrassed but I told him he shouldn't be! He went after the GOAT and Silva does shit that others can't do.
