UFC fans (which you MUST understand is extremely NEW to the sport) come around and start to accept him and the talent outside of the states.
"Outside" fighter? What....the UFC is some exclusive club where you have to earn status to be called a "UFC fighter"....or does that happen when you sign on the dotted line for 3-4 fights? Silva signed making himself a "UFC" fighter.

He did his homework prior to the fight. He cornered Horn's fight with Silva, and he has seen Silva fight before on a number of occasions so he knew what kind of fighter he was facing.

The huge mistake is in the belief that the UFC is the "be all to end all" of mixed martial arts. And so people end up with a knowledge of UFC fighters, thus robbing themselves of valuble knowledge of FIGHTERS based all over the world and not just in N. America.

True fans of the sport know Silva as well as the fighters of K-1, Shooto, Pancrase etc. For the last time, and this goes to only those to whom it applies........open your minds to the wonderful SPORT of MMA and it's fighters of the world.

The reason why Rich was being tossed around like a Rag-Doll was, do you know how it feels to be put into a Clinch much less from a former Chute Boxe member... LoL, alright let me explain this for those of us who has never been put into a muy thai clinch, the amount of energy spent on breaking out of it is exhausting, much less taking 1 knee to the midsection/ribs = Breathtaking, it knocks the wind outta you and hurts like a Mother Fawking Bltch and Silva connected many 20+ knees, (just picture getting hit by logs) so by that time, Rich was all gassed, his midsection in excruciating pain, all he can think about is protecting his mid section, you would see even a few times, towards the end, he would drop his guard lower just so that he could protect taking another....


Rich def. knows how to break out of clinches and he's a way smarter/better fighter then all of us, dont you think he thought of all these ideas we thought of, to break out, come on the guy does this for a living, any beginner of Muy Thai is taught various ways of breaking out of it, and im sure Rich knows of more ways then the people who teach us.



but Silva caught him with a perfect clinch (hands locked behind the crown, forearms locked beside the neck) and the rest, your just in for a beating.... Rich didnt react fast enough to break lose, and like Rich mentioned, he just underestimated Silva (deadly,big mistake) and probably thought he could muscle his way out of this skinny looking black guy (i know hes spanish)


ps- open your eyes up to MMA not just UFC, you will only learn so much from 1 sided things.. if you are a true fan of the sport, you branch out and learn as many as possible..
Agreed to everything u said. Alot of people don't know or understand the energy it takes to fight someone who has pressure on the back of your head bending your neck down locking the forarms one on each collar bone tightly, followed by your waist which are the most crucial points being affected. I ain't even going to sugar coat it. The shit hurts and this alone can sap alot of energy from you. A person can be led around almost easily and at will in this position.

Here's food for thought to piggy back on cloud is saying......try looking at your favorite fighters early careers, their records...everything. Check their past opponents, their records and whom they've beaten. Try it and you'll be suprised at who you'll see.

If that fails, simply wait til you hear of a guy you never heard of, type his name in a search engine, pull his info up and absorb.

that clinch is the easiest to break.i wrestled d1 for 4 years the worst guy in the divison could have broke that silly tai clinch.single leg takedown,full body lock would put u in possible mount pos. doulble leg tdown for ground and pound.u guys sound like huge fans that dont know anything about mma or takedowns.a basic strong swim move would have broke that for christs sake.Fitch from purdue would have taken him down at will.guys hes very human

And the single or double leg attempt at breaking that "silly" THAI clinch can be countered with a sprawl.

Well I dont think you could misunderstand my post any more if you actually tried. I dont think Rich was prepared for that fight. I think if he was really ready it would have been better then it was, no he might not have won but he would have done better.

To the new UFC fan he was an outsider. Do you honestly believe that joe budwieser knew who Anderson Sliva was? Outside of "some crazy striker who fights in Japan" no.

Im not saying UFC is an "exclusive" club. But I enjoy having a successful North American verison of Pride. It can do nothing but good for the sport. Im not being a dink to you im just trying to convey my points in a more coherant manner bud.

But having a guy sprawl on you is alot better then being in the clinch taking knees to the kidneys and face.

back to shootboxer i read an earlier comment.if rich had a single leg and anderson sprawed anderson would do the splits and get ko'd by richs knee .not a good option.if rich went for a double leg he would shoot his legs and put his head on silvas hip and tdown being no sprawl available. u dont sprawl for the clich dummy.as i did say earlier i would chose the full body lock inside silva arms up high and probably judo throw or bjj trip
