Good point on him signing a new contract as I wasn't aware of that. Even though he still may realize that his best bet is to STAY with the UFC....maybe this is his way of being defiant. I don't know..only a postulation. Also...don't mind my title. I don't know how I spelled monopoly wrong....been a long day and got my butt kicked in sparring:/

I agree completely. And everyone keeps talking about Silva running away from Demian... I don't remember that. In the first two rounds when Maia did throw, Silva countered and busted him up. In later rounds when Maia was standing in the center of the ring he wasnt throwing punches. It wasnt until he got completely desperate in the 5th that he started actually engaging.

I also wanted to quote this to say how Awesome that .gif is. I love Silva and will gladly pay for any card he is on. To everyone complaining about his disrespecting of Maia is too sensitive. Its MMA... if you dont like what your opponent is doing, make them stop...

I still blame the matchmaking, has anyone been excited about Silva's last three title defenses? We complained about the fights before they even took place, complaining that none of the three deserved to be in the octagon with him. It blows my mind that people think Anderson owes us an explosive finish every fight.... He went out and won the first three rounds without question, even going out of his comfort zone and attacking in the first two rounds. At that point, why would he keep attacking when he is a known counterpuncher and has the fight in the bag? No matter who you are fighting, they still have a punchers chance so why go out and get caught when winning the fight 3 rounds to 2 looks no different than 5 rounds to nothing?

GSP does the EXACT same thing (refuses to fight out of his comfort zone) and people love him. Only difference is his style happens to be offensive takedowns as opposed to Anderson's defensive striking.

With my head shaved or full of product
I get full of myself because I think Iím a good guy
But in truth, I belong to the worst breed that exists
Iím a playboy! I think Iím happy, but Iím sad
Iím worse than a plague, Iím worse than a pest,
Iím everywhere on the surface of the Earth
Iíll tell you where playboys proliferate by the thousands
Itís in a poor, capitalistic country like Brazil
óPortrait of a Playboy, by Brazilian rap/pop star
Gabriel the Thinker, 1993
In

Pay attention black on the outside, white on the inside
I speak the truth, you make fun of me, I donít
regret it
You donít inform yourself, you donít have
consciousness, you donít know anything
And you become a doormat, a lapdog to the playboys
At the dance club the playboys are all dressed up
And the idiot without money, disheveled, standing on
the side\

So I came, from the extreme south of the south zone
in S„o Paulo, okay? Cap„o Redondo [a favela].
I (come) to Rio de Janeiro again, okay. . . .
And I will always come here. [ . . . . ] The difference
between here and there, is the name of the city, okay.
The condition of life is the same, the problems . . .
are practically the same, okay? So itís the
following. We are all a revolution, the revolution
of attitude, you know what Iím saying? I take a lot of
pride okay, in wearing a cap, wearing a jacket,
okay brother, in cutting my hair like this, because this
is my life, you know what Iím saying. I donít need to
have a wavy forelock of hair to imitate a playboy.
Ignorant black thinking that he is light brown
Just because the whores told him that he is a
cute black
He is becoming more idiotic each time
He is even carrying the playboysí surfboard
He is being used more than an objectified woman
They only call him a friend when he is nearby
I get pissed off at blacks like us
Who become like toilet paper of the [play]boys
[refrain:]
I hope you learn like us
And stop sucking up to the playboys

[shouts, applause] Okay brother, you know what Iím
saying, my life is this, okay.
[ . . . . ]
Since then brother, since then, a lot of blacks
sold out. A lot of blacks straightened their hair, okay
brother. A lot of blacks . . . started listening to
New Wave. A lot of blacks turned into rock fans.
A lot of brothers betrayed the nation okay brother.
[ . . . . ] Because rap is my life, okay. Itís my
slang, my cap, my lifestyle. Itís what
I know how to do. Itís what got me to be here . . . until
today, okay. Peace amongst us. **** the playboy!
[start of song: ďHey [Play]BoyĒ]

people still know what the meaning behind it was regardless if it's still in dispute, the manner in which anderson was using it was clearly derogatory and he seems to be a fan of hip-hop culture which is displayed in his choice of music and dress sense
