Especially considering Maia was pushing forward and throwing bombs the last round or two.

Silva lost a LOT of fans that day.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

You can always tell who was never a fan of Silva. He's so good it makes you delusional.

Silva lost fans in the Leites and Cote fights too then got them all back with Griffin.

Belfort and Sonnen made people forget about Maia too, fickle bunch.

Maia did start pushing forward and he clipped Anderson pretty good at one point.

And it isn't delusional. Silva made a fool a himself that night.

Silva was terrified of Maia, that's why he fought such a shit fight. Winning was more attractive than putting on a show. Maia represented the most dangerous guy he ever faced but nobody really cottoned on to that fact.

Well that is what happened if you live in a fantasy world like Joe Rogan, don't understand boxing, and can't follow striking exchanges. Windmilling weak arm punches that aren't even landing for the most part is clearly better than drilling your opponent in the face with measured powerful strikes thrown with proper technique. That is why Anderson got dropped while that happened oh wait it was Maia who was rolling over his ankle unconscious as a result of those exchanges. Clearly he was just taking a short victory nap content with the fact that he out struck Anderson Silva.

I actually am a fan of Silva. I won't try to excuse his display during that fight. Neither should any of his other fans.

Silva was an embarrassment to himself and the sport that night. I'm amazed people even try to defend this. The fanboyism of people on here know no ends.

Was it your or kreed who thought Silva vs Griffin was about race? I can't remember.

I don't care how good you are. There is never an excuse for this...

...Maia's BJJ has gotten nastier since he's getting TD's--like he did in the Story fight. Fitch-Maia- One of the best offensive and defensive submission fights I've ever seen. What impressed me the most is how Fitch fought off continued sub attempts by one of the very best BJJ guys on the earth. Maia holding that constant body triangle through upright backmount, to the ground. That was awesome. Even though Fitch lost, I loved every second of this fight...

You are disagreeing with me about how I interpreted a marketing campaign and societal reaction. I am pointing out with facts that you are flat out making shit up. So the breakdown of this exchange is that you create a false reality to support your desires and broken thoughts and that you don't understand the difference between opinion and fact because of this.

LOL. The guy who thought Silva vs Griffin was about race is saying I live in a fantasy world. Good one bud

The rest of your post is a rant about God knows what.

I never said Silva was in trouble during that fight, or that he didn't win striking exchanges. Your simpleton mind construed that in itself. I said Silva embarrassed himself during that fight. Try to keep up... but I won't count on it.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.
