It is a fact not a perception. He took a short notice fight to save a card a little while after Bones refusing to fight Sonnen caused them to pull an entire card.

You guys like to hate on Silva because he's an easy target (Anyone who sits on top of a division as long as he has is bound to be questioned).

That being said, I think the next fight should be against Weidman and I hope it happens soon
Also, wasn't Weidman scheduled to fight Belcher at the time?

Vitor was supposed to fight Belcher, Weidman was trying to get the Silva fight then took the Boetsch fight.

Im not a fan of Anderson or Jones

But

Anderson Silva is a god damn honor to watch fight and i respect him even more for stepping up to take fights on short notice to save the card. If i remember correctly i think he offered to fight Jon Jones when Hendo got injured.

Jon Jones on the other hand i respect his skills and i love to watch him fight also but other then that i consider him to be a little bitch.

Sideways speaks the truth.

I agree with all of this except the part about loving to watch Hendo fight... the only way i like to watch Hendo fight is in the hope that he gets his ass kicked.

Silva doesn't duck anyone. There's nobody good enough to duck at MW. Simple.

Well I must say... I'm warmed by this thread.

Once you break it all down, it's clear Hendo is talking a load of old tosh.
