I can't wait for the rematch...and to be honest it will be the first fight in a long time that I wont be supporting one fighter more than the other!!!
Is it just me or is everyone marking for this match!!
How's that showboating? What's the difference between doing a dance, and someone jumping ontop the fence raising their arms in the air, or someone repeatively punching the air (like Rich Franklin) or Jason MacDonald signaling a choke and "putting someone to sleep" after his fight with Leben?
There is nothing wrong with any of those, it's excitement, and I also must say Silva's dances are entertaining
As for the respect, no doubt these 2 guys, Randy Couture and Hermes Franca are the classiest fighters in the UFC.
Unlike the pathetic Ohio fans in attendence that boo'd Silva for whipping on their hometown boy. Not to mention booing him when he was speaking not English, ****ing morons.
And by the way, Silva shouldn't have to learn an entire different language because of his occupation. His occupation is to beat some puds down with some knees, elbows, strikes, have great BJJ and a great ground game overall...his job isn't to learn the hardest language to learn in the world just to please some apple pie yuppies. The guy has a translater, and that's all he needs. If he wants to by all means, he can learn the language, but he doesn't have to learn it out of "respect" for the American public.
