Anderson fought like he always fights, and lost spectacularly. His irrational fans are still having a hard time grasping this.
lol, I see I was right to think you were one of "those fans". It's pretty ironic you use "fought like he always fights" and then call other people irrational.
If he fought like he "always" fights, then as I've said before - Leonard Garcia is a highly technical striker.

Stick to your bread and butter and just work takedowns.
Clearly his bread and butter surpasses just takedowns...

That fight was pretty crazy to watch. I didn't see it live or anything but it was a pretty intense moment. Anderson has never really clowned someone so hard, so early. Weidman looking to rarely grapple was also a surprise too.

sonnen outstrike anderson on the feet in their first fight too. People act like anderson has never been outstruck before.

It's because anderson is worried about the takedown and neither of them are afraid of anderson that's a couple of the reasons why they both did so well on the feet against anderson

GSP fought like he always fights against Serra and lost spectacularly. Guess that means Serra can hang with GSP on the feet too.
