Well...there's a lot of people who say it for the sake of it. Without properly analyzing the fights, stats, attributes, styles, and more importantly the history of the fighters. IE: You don't think Anderson has been thinking about this "loss" for the last five years or so. With his title, legacy, revenge, all on the line at his hometown he was going to put on a show. Guess what, Okami brought it to em. Okami dictated the fight in the first and realized he was at a stalemate then he got jarred in the final seconds and that was his welcoming present to BRAZIL and into "The Spider's" realm. That really turned the tides. Had that kick not landed Okami would have been confident still, I could see Chael in him especially with not touching gloves. I know Chael probably told em not to do it. Pretty disrespectful if you ask me and even after the fight Okami didn't really seem to acknowledge em just a sheepish nod of the head. That is what Anderson does to fighters; he makes them mortal.
I think now most see Anderson Silva for who he is and what he represents. IT'S ART AT ITS FINEST! HE TRULY DEFINES THE "ART" IN MARTIAL ARTS.
Don't be a surprised when they create a statue for em in Curitiba.
