'Generally' doesn't translate into 'never' now does it (different fight, but point made)

I don't tend to falsify or conjure up imaginary statistics or facts. Even if I read an article that was total BS (Bleacher Report) and now cannot find, as bad as that looks, I have little reason to outright lie.

Besides, if the 10-8 comment was literally the only thing you could pick apart in my post, then take your arrogant attitude and jog on. We've nothing else to discuss.

Unless of course you'd like to further defend Shogun and Machida for bailing on the UFC.

Wiki says one of the judges scored it 10-8. Dunno if that counts as anything solid. It's not like they link a source.

I would give it as a 10-8 to be honest. Round two, Silva was finding his groove. It was a matter of time after that. The short thing only meant in ended earlier. Sonnen should be glad about it.

EDIT

@John
Wrong fight dude.

Or you can just look at the damn scorecard and see the Judges gave out 3 10-8's.

You're still on the wrong scorecard. They were talking about the second fight.

I once said recently, that I believe that Nick Diaz is man enough that he knows in his heart, when he simply got beaten by the better fighter. I said that I could respect someone that somewhere he can take responsibility for what happens to him. I really wanted to believe that their was some redeeming qualities about Nick that I could relate with, I really wanted to find something about Nick to say "I like or respect Nick because...".

I am really starting to regret my statement and I would like to retract it if possible, this whole accusation thing is embarrassing, and likely will not stop anytime soon from Diaz and his Camp. Nick has no shred of honor, just complains.

Yes I would. Shogun and Machida had NOTHING to gain from taking a fight at one week's notice when they were ALREADY #1-3 contenders in the division, already holding losses to Jones, and Machida at least would most likely get a title shot on his own merit with a full camp soon anyway.

CHAEL on the other hand had NOTHING to lose with this unearned fight and EVERYTHING to gain. If he loses, so what? He's a middleweight, everyone expects him to. He doesn't get pushed down the ladder, damage his career, nothing, BECAUSE HE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE A WIN IN THE DIVISION THIS DECADE. If he wins he gets to be A UFC CHAMP, his lifelong dream, without any effort climbing the ladder whatsoever. This has been discussed ad nauseam, I don't know why people still continue to harp about Chael's badassery for mouthing himself to a free unearned title shot ... his situation was completely different from Machida's.

I'm glad you told me you're not a liar, because if there's one thing you can depend on to pick out liars, it's that people always tell the truth about not lying.

Besides even if you didn't, your source could be some sonnenite in a comments thread that you can't recall. Just claiming you saw "some article, somewhere" and telling me stories of your angelic honesty won't make me believe a preposterous claim like calling that boring LnP round without a single landed punch a 10-8.

Or you could realize we're talking about the 2nd fight obviously.

Then you must be kinda confused posting giant page breaking scorecards of Anderson and Sonnen .

Anyway sorry for coming off kinda short there, I realize you probably just read from my comment onwards without reading CP's original and didn't realize what we were talking about, no worries.
