Two counter strikers, and I mean extreme counter strikers who are very patient and rely on the opponent to attack, and you clowns think this would be an amazing fight?

Him and Machida would be More Boring than watching San Antonio Spurs Vs Atlanta Hawks in the NBA finals .. Seriously.

They would not go 100% and would both wait for the other to make the first move / engage. Pass for that fight.

Suddenly his tune has changed.

😫
The interview after the Maia fight I believe, Anderson hold up the belt and slaps it yelling in Portuguese " here is the belt, if you want it, then come get it" or something to that effect.

Pretty clear to me.

I've been a fan of his for quite a while and if there's something I've learned through the years is don't take his answers to the media word by word.

I personally got a laugh out of it, especially when you got a suspicion the reporter doesn't realize he/she is being trolled.

I know you have been one of his detractors (a moderate one at least from what I've read) but as a fan at this point from a realistic point of view what I'd like to see is see him say good bye after one/two victories.

This isn't bally kick... this is fighting where you would have to hurt your friend. Which normal people don't like to do.

You want to rip on Anderson, it would make more sense to point out he fought Hendo and Franklin and that's pretty much it. And went to LHW for 3 gimmes.
Its a sport. Anyone competing against a friend is going to hurt them, whether physically or emotionally. That doesn't stop anyone in other sports from sucking it up and being a professional.

This isn't a street fight to the death. They don't have to brutalize one another to the point of permanent damage. They will still be friends afterward. All of this "I won't fight my friend" stuff is childish, silly posturing that apparently goes out the window for guys like Anderson when it becomes advantageous for him.
