Fighters don't fade away in MMA they burn out. It happened to Chuck, Cro Cop, Fedor, and countless others and it is happening to Anderson.
Anyone care to make a bet with me? This is an easy payday for Nick and will spring board him into a title shot. Pretty much exactly what he was looking for.
Agree that he has faded but Nick is not knocking him out. Nick's whole strategy is that he sits in the pocket and engages. He takes a lot of shots. Anderson is NOT a guy you want to take shots from and Anderson's accuracy is excellent. Nick is NOT a good stylistic match up for Anderson. Nick is getting knocked out and Anderson has a point to prove.
