Alot of people believe the UFC is superior to Pride when it comes to talent level. I am a big fan of UFC but I don't agree with that statement-Anderson Sylva case in point!!
There is no bandwagon when it comes to MMA, football yes, MMA, no.
You cant jump on a bandwagon when you have conclusive evidence towards a fighters talents. Especially with guys like me and a lot others we're pissing their pants when the UFC signed this guy.
People just don't understand...this is a different kind of fighter the UFC has had in the past couple of years. All the praise Silva is getting he's done nothing but earned it, plain and simple, his UFC and past fights have shown he's a world class MMA fighter, I mean..people that use that "ohh you're just jumping on the bandwagon", are either
A. TUF2 Rich Franklin fans
B. TUF1 Chris Leben fans
C. UFC nuthuggers
D. All American boys that have something against foreign fighters
When fans actually have a knowledgable aspect towards the sport, there is no bandwagon.
Look at it this way, for the people using the "bandwagon" BS, a lot of people are still making excuses up the ass for Rich to this day, is that "still being on Richs bandwagon"? It definitely sounds like it.
Drop the bandwagon bullshit, and actually talk sensibly, wisely, and informative.
No one is saying Anderson Silva is unbeatable, not even hardcore fans, like someone said before anyone can be beaten, but you just have to read between the lines boys, Anderson Silva is the real deal, and he's going to stay. Yes, he'll walk through some guys they put in front of him. Yes, some will push him. But I'm telling you in my honest opinion I don't think anyone is going to be able to finish the guy at this point in his career.
