Interview with Ed Soares about Anderson's performance (*Spoiler*)

This is a very interesting interview about Anderson's performance Saturday night. It really seems like he had trouble finding the correct words to say. Obviously he is going to defend his fighter, but it seemed very interesting that he seemed a little disapointed himself.

Mods please inbed video . . . I haven't quite figured that out yet!

Thank you for that. very interesting. We just heard straight from eds mouth. anderson was trying to finish the fight. Bottom line = A. Silva is not a good enough fighter to finish a bjj fighter in a kick boxing match. That's what I heard ed say anyway.

What exactly did Maia do that made Silva not find his range ? How often does Silva not find his range ? What if he couldn't find his range all 5 rounds, would we have a new MW champ ?

What does finding your range mean anyway ? I'm not sure I buy into it, it seemed like Maia was attacking pretty sloppy in the last 2 rounds and Silva didn't even try to hit him.

OK the rest of the interview was ok but the "Finding the range" BS completely throws doubt to everything Ed just said. A blind three year old with no hands could have found the range with how foolishly Maia was attacking. Saying Anderson Silva, probably one of the greatest and most accurate striker in MMA, can't makes you just seem foolish.
