although I dislike the guy for his actions in the Mia and second Sonnon fight its good of him to do this.

I remember Louisville Cardinal and Kentucky wildcat basketball players visited me when I had cancer and it made a huge difference in keeping my spirits up

Nice gesture on your behalf as well, TLL. You play so well the anti-Anderson, people could easily believe that it is about blind hate, but you just showed it's not like that at all.

My feelings for Anderson are so muddled, I never know how I feel about him in a consistent fashion, this is a great thing he's done though that's for sure.

Thanks to Killz for the great sig!

To the people that hate him, what are the reasons for it? Clowning Mia?

Actually, no it wasn't. I've seen hundreds of clips of celebrities and sports people visiting sick people. Particularly from our well paid footballers in the UK. Rarely do you see the kind of personal physical affection shown by Anderson in this clip. It's usually some contrived nonsense dripping in falsity. A handshake. A pat on the head. A smile for the camera. Next.

I suspect Silva is a wonderful father.

That was heartwarming. And yes it did seem a whole lot more personal and warmer than the factory line celebrity make-a-wish visit. Good on Anderson, now I'm slightly less sure about rooting for Weidman.

I must admit, as a big Anderson fan, I really despised him after that fight for a while.
