I am fluent in Portuguese and Anderson Silva was nothing short of a gentlemen, he basically said that Rich Franklin was a great champion and was grateful for the opportunity to fight him, he was now doing the same thing Rich did for him in return, giving someone else the opportunity to become champion, I don't care if Dana asked him to do it or not, I'm sure Dana has asked other fighters to put on the happy face and they can't do it, not even on their best days. Silva is an absolute class act.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?



Favorite Fighters:

Chuck Liddell
Rich Franklin
Diego Sanchez

BTW, Anderson looked a lot bigger than Travis when they were in the ring.
Yes he did. I was very suprised.

He probably didn't talk shit because he knows that he's going to slaughter Lutter easily.

i dont think silva is stupid enough to think a guy who is actually better than him at an aspect of mma is to be taken lightly.

I don't think Silva was quiet cause he knew he was gonna win or whatever was said.....I think he was just being respectful of another fighter and showing what true sportsmanship is all about.

God someone please teach this guy english and he would be yet another great ambassador for the sport. I love it when guys show this kind of respect. It a awful tough game, and its nice to see guys like Anderson making the most of their time in the spot light!

Silva's a true gentleman. He's someone who would make a great champion for any MMA organization, because he carries himself well and is extremely respectful. Hell, he even admitted he needs to work on his BJJ. The guy shows humility.
