People seem to love Silva because he drops his hands and "embarrasses" people. This seems to catapult his standing to a different level for some reason.
They seem to forget the fact that he spends a lot of time on his back being totally controlled and unable to get back up. But this is all forgotten when the next round starts because he gets to do the dropped hands thing which fools people into thinking he's better than he is.
When he drops his hands and gets KTFOd, these same clueless fools claim it doesn't count because "He wasn't being serious".
