His fight against Silva was one of the most exciting last year IMO. Maybe he's not the most exciting alive. But you don't have to finish people to be exciting.

He is trash, and worthless. Honestly, even my disdain for Rampage takes a back seat to this piece of shit. I can honestly say he is the only fighter athlete in the world that I would laugh at if they suffered a career ending injury. Karma has a way of finding people, and I have a feeling even after all this legal stuff it's not done with Chael.
Where as Silva disrespects a completely innocent Demian Maia for 25 minutes in front of the whole world.

Screw that, Anderson turned into a bully and not in a fighting sense. He deserved everything he got from Chael, and what Chael has done is no worse IMO. Anderson is genuine in his arrogance, whereby he wants to humiliate guys like Maia for merely suggesting they will beat him in pre-fight buildup. Chael on the other hand is full of shit, he's a complete smack talker but never actually says anything that bad. He's disrespectful but it's all a game, a big act, and many people see it for that. It's amusing.

What Silva did to Maia though, that shit wasn't amusing. That was fully intentional and genuine disrespect on the biggest stage of all. You want to get into right and wrong, don't look past Anderson.

WAR CHAEL

Just because you don't finish, doesn't make your fights boring. GSP is one of the most entertaining fighters and he hasn't finished in a while.

But comparing GSP and Sonnen is silly. GSP actually goes for submissions, better positions and actually beats your face in.

If you are unable to finish anybody in the top 30-50.. that automatically makes you less exciting.. cause you already know what the result will be.

Also Anderson helped making this fight exciting, cause almsot everybody was shocked about Cheal's performance that night.

But he was on Drugs and Silva was badly injured..

See above

GSP is not really exciting lately.. he can't finish a figth either. But his GnP actually has some force behind it, I agree.

Let's see, he mocked Armstrong's cancer and claimed he gave it to himself, while accusing him of roiding. All while he was in fact roiding himself. He then lied about it and thumbed his nose at the whole world with his "hispanic guy" comment. He lies about whether he uses the internet and whether the messed up stuff he said on his twitter was actually him. He lied to the CSAC about Kizer in order to get himself out of trouble. These are just a few of the most notable things he said and did. He spent the better part of a year saying bad stuff and really only slowed down when he got caught defrauding a bank AND using roids.

I love watching him fight, in interviews at weigh ins and press conferences the guy isn't the most talented but like mayhem miller is a media dream come true.

And yes, Sonnen was winning the fight, but yes it was lay and pray. He sat in the guard and did no damage. Sure, Silva was exhausted, it happens in a fight. But, LnP is when you get the fight down and keep it down to win by decision. He never tried to pass, never did any damage with his flailing GnP. It's not conventional LnP, in that he stayed busy enough to keep the fight down, but it is essentially the exact same thing.
You have 30 posts and you are talking to people like that? I have no clue why you aren't banned but you should be. And from the sound of some of the things you post I would not be surprised if you are a returning banned member.

GSP and entertaining don't belong in the same sentence.
