Maia keeps tight lipped, and Anderson feels the need to humiliate him because he was somehow 'disrespectful'. Vitor shows him proper respect, to the point where he was adamant about fighting more contenders before stepping into the Octagon with such a unique champion, and Anderson decides there's bad blood between the two. Now, he's doing the same with Okami, who by all accounts has had nothing more to say of Anderson outside of his wanting a crack at the title. And yet I'm reading interviews now where Silva claims that Yushin has been disrespectful and boasts about his victory over the champ, that he should have continued to fight in their initial bout and therefore has no honour, and even that he was KOed anyway and is hence a 'victory' for Anderson. I really don't get why he goes so far out of his way to get person with people who genuinely don't seem to warrant it.

Even more mind boggling is he had NOTHING to say to or against Chael Sonnen, someone who legitimately gave him reason to make it personal. Anderson is crazy.
Thats very easy to explain actually! He only does that to fighters who he thinks won't engange in the fights which Silva needs in order to shine and fight his fight.

Everybody he didn't talk trash back like Leben, or Sonnen.. he knew that they would bring the fight to him, but with Maia and Belfort that wasn't the case.

and his whole fighting career shows this evidence in every pre-fight situation.

I like you, BC, but that's a fairly poor and unsubstantiated 'explanation'. I think it has more to do with his being a jerk than anything else. I highly doubt Anderson believed Vitor wouldn't come to trade with him, and if that was his modus operandi all along, then why no smack-talk against Leites pre-fight? Again, I think the explanation lies more in who he is as a human being. While I respect Anderson Silva the fighter as much as one possibly could, as a man, Silva is a bit of a knob. And there's plenty of proof out there to substantiate that.

I know Psycho, thats what is the easiest and what the haters always say.

If you want to believe me, you have to do your own research Psycho. I did it in all details and it became clear as day to me.

Anderson is a counter striker Psycho always remember that.

Just study his history and you will realize it.

He did mock Leites prefight!

He had no beef with Maia.

It was a trap for him to walk into a counterstrike but it didn't work.

they were hugging each other after the fight lol


Study his entire fighting career and pre fight antics and you will realize the same phenomena every single time.

It sounds ridicluous I know lol^^ but it is really the truth!

He only ever does it to guys who won't engage with him, he is unbeliavble smart.

Wait until he mocks Okami I already read an Interview where he said that he found it very direspectful by Okami to take the DQ at there first bout.

He is going to mock Okami because he knows he won't attack.

I mean helloo?? It's Yushin Okami the nicest guy in the sport!!

Anderson did have beef with Maia. He swore at him and called him a playboy during the fight. First he said he didn't know why he did it then he made some garbage up about Maia disrespecting him.

Probably was for a couple reasons.

Taking that beating he still put up more of a fight than anyone else has recently against GSP.

Shogun Rua
Jon Fitch
Wanderlei Silva

He came close to winning the second round as well. which is pretty good seeing as GSP hasn't lost a round since the first BJ fight.

very mysterious sounds more like an arrogant punk and i love the part "WE'VE GOT TO DO IT" like we should feel sorry for him and its a waste of his time.


I pray Okami wins


sorry to the moderators for not editing this to make it a single post
There's nothing arrogant about his statement whatsoever Seems you're the delusional one. All he's saying is that he's not majorly excited about fighting a guy who he knocked out 5 years ago, but if Okami's earned the title shot then it's Silva's duty to defend it.
