If Silva wanted to lose he would have tapped during the leg lock. Much better then getting your skull bounced off the canvas.

agreed. And the weird thing is i dont think people would be creating as many conspiracy theories if he just got subbed. Even though you would think if you wanted to throw a fight then tapping to a sub is the way to go.

No way he would fake tap to a sub.
Anderson takes the respect for his BJJ masters pretty seriously. After all, it it wasn't for Big Nog he would be washing cars right now...

No way Silva would fake a loss full stop. The very idea is the pinnacle of internet ridiculousness.

He would not throw a fight by sub cause he does not want to insult his BJJ masters

But

he would insult Mixed Martial Arts, His trainers, his "striking" masters, the UFC, His fans, his opponent, HIMSELF, by throwing a fight by KO.

????

Kind of a flaw in logic if you ask me.

Not that i am saying you are saying he threw the fight. Just commenting on your post.

I didn't said that. :P
In fact you've never "heard" me say he dropped the fight.
I'm just saying that if he did, a fake tap would be the last thing he would resort to in order to achieve his intents...

Great... now its his turn to say he never said you said that.

But on the real... i dont know if throwing a fight by sub is insulting to the Nogs. Throwing the fight in general is insulting but im not so sure making it by sub makes it any more insulting to them. But im not Brazilian and am not a master so i have a complete different outlook and honor code then them so i cannot speak for them i can only speak my opinion.

It's just that Anderson life and his family would be so much different if Big Nog hadn't insisted with Andy to keep going, even borrowing him money at the time so he could keep training without getting a real job.
I just can't begin to imagine how i wouldn't be licking that guy's balls for the rest of his life if it had happened to me...

Yeah i know he did all that stuff for him and i agree id be licking the dudes nuts also because he in a way saved your life but i just dont really understand why throwing the fight by sub is any more insulting then just throwing the fight by whatever. Like i said maybe its just cause i have a different honor code or im not a trainer or whatever BUT if im going to be pissed off its because my student threw the fight. I could care less how he threw the fight tbh...
