Your thoughts on SIlva offering his hand and Cote refusing it?

Was Silva's intention sincere or was he toying with him again? Because I've never seen this in MMA before. Was he being disrespectful here?

Also why do you think Cote refused it? Or why should he have accepted it? Was he right or was it disrespectful from him?

How do you explain/understand what happened in this precise moment?

Crocop used to do that all the time back when he was dominating.

Cote did the right thing.What if silva pulls him off the ground only to knee him in the face when he's getting up?

btw: I didnt see the end of the fight due to a retarded youtube user not recording the third round.What happened in the third?

I think you kinda hit it there, it was kinda humilitating for Cote but I dont think it was meant that way, particularily with the cultural diffrences its hard to tell, Id like to hear some of Silva's countrymens opinions on the matter.

Silva wouldn't do that. That crowd would have bull-rushed the stage with a stunt like that

Silva was showboating a lot that fight but from his history of being a very respectful fighter and person I wouldn't bank on that being an intentionally disrespectful gesture. Still it did come across that way..
