Ooohhh... that's what happened, Andy couldn't find his distance and that's why he "couldn't" finish the opponent he was playing with like a rag doll. Damage control is one thing, I get the PR game, but c'mon.

Its hard to find your range when the ref keeps getting in the way.

clearly something happened during round 3. When he did engage, Maia would actually land...not much but land nonethless. To me Anderson did more than just look like Starnes in the last two rounds, he actually was ducking. Why? No idea. The uninspired /lost range answer seems to fit. It's such a bizarre event, i don't thin anything but a bizarre answer will explain. He's clearly a very emotional guy. An artiste...

I really don't buy this I couldn't find my range b.s. He sure found his range the first two rounds. It's almost like he didn't want to hurt the poor bastard. Oh well hopefully they put him in with Chael next time, he should get really pissed because Sonnen talks a lot more sh*t than Maia.

Out of respect for those that may have been out of town this weeked. In my area it was spring break and a lot of people were on vacation with their families and didn't watch the fights.

The "couldn't find the distance" comment is pretty interesting actually, and normally would seem an obvious fabrication from the camp of such a quality striker. Silva did take a few shots later in the fight, and didn't have the offense he had early. Silva shouldn't have been gassed, because he wasn't expending a whole lot the first half of the fight. He could have been purposely dogging it later, but I wonder if heat stroke might have come into play. High exertion with dehydration can trigger it. Considering the fluids Silva had to cut to make weight, combined with the high humidity, its possible his body started to protest internally. Add in that the manager is leaving the day of that interview, but mentions AS is staying on in Dubai a few days longer.
