Anderson Silva: Pure Class

I have to admit something, I never have been the biggest Spider fan going, but recently, I've jumped on the bandwagon. He's the best as a fighter in the cage, but man is he also one of the most respectful, classy fighters out there. The bowing before the fight, offering his hand to Cote to help him up (I thought he was trying to be a douche at first, but then realized what he was doing) and then at the end of the fight. I could see a bunch of guys pouncing in for the kill when Cote went down, but not Silva. Kneeling down, almost as if he was praying for Cote was the ultimate show of respect. He has def. won me over as a fan

He was a show boating prick in that fight. Offering his hand is completely disrespectful.
I hope someone knocks his block off.

I think the mutual bowing was respectful. But putting out his hand to help Cote up? He might not have meant it as disrespect but it was very disrespectful.

Yeah he wasn't really being very respectful at all in that fight, I actually have lost a little bit of respect for Silva after that performance. Dude will get beaten if he does that crap against some of the light heavyweights.

AxeMurderer2212 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I lost respect for him as well. He looked like Machida in that fight. I honestly expected so much more considering i find him one of the most exciting fighters to watch. Running around and shit and acting like a total dick.

The bow after round 1 or 2 and after the fight was cool. But he was dancing around to much for my liking. Also offering to help the guy up isn't something you do in a fight. It just makes things odd. I mean 1. he doesn't need help up. When I was doing martial arts I always offered to help someone up in training but usually got up on my own because its not like you really need help unless your hurt. 2. How is that suppose to even work? It would make it akward because you would have to basically call a non-official time and then go ok lets fight now.

I wouldn't say he 'looked like Machida' in that fight, it was just that outside of the bowing and such he seemed to show little respect for Cote as a fighter. It seems like all of the UFC's hype of Silva has gotten to his head now..

I dont think the offering of the hand was disrespectful and as much as Ive never been a Silva fan I doubt it was meant as such, I do see how it could be interpruted as such though.

Anderson Silva was not acting like a "dick", he was simply using brilliant technique to defend Patrick Cote. All that dancing as you guys refer to it is not showboating but rather movement. As a fan of the sport Anderson verified for me that this sport can be beautiful. It's not all about guys running around "swinging for the fences".

I felt like he was showboating a bit, but I feel like it was still an entertaining fight. Silva lost none of my respect for trying to put on a show, and Cote gained a lot of my respect for taking Silva's bursts and never being deterred.

I would like to see this fight again, hopefully more conclusively.
