Why isn't Silva fighting like he used to?

So Chris Leben, Nate, HEnderson, Rich Franklin, cote, James Irvin he fought in a more serious stance.. used his knees.. used the plum.. was a lot more aggressive and had his hands up..

then... Since Leites.. he has started to fight differently with showmanship, hands down, taunting and such.. Maia, Forrest, Okami, etc.

Aside from Chael Sonnen and maybe Vitor.. he has been playing with his hands down.. But even with those 2 fighters, he wasn't fighting the same aggressive style.


So what is the reason behind this? can he actually fight like he used to anymore? How would he do fighting WEidman again the way he fought Henderson in round 2.

some threads are just so stupid
first of all, he's 38 years old, 38 FUCKING YEARS OLD
second, he's been defending his title for 7 years, he's tired
third, he's got kids, and wants to spend more time with them, he's not training as seriously

I think he's so good that he's unmotivated to destroy everyone so toys with them, but got caught screwing around against Weidman. Silva will be all business next time...

Honestly I believe he didn't think okami,bonnar etc were on his level,he didn't do it against chael as in the first fight chael was all over him the second fight he knew he was in for a tough fight so respected him,or against vitor like u mentioned.

I think he believed his own hype and got to a point were he knew If he acted invincible people believed it and he was winning fights before the fought,against Weidman end of the first he got into his head but he just reached a point were he said fuk it and didn't quit.

I think we will see a revitalized silva but win or lose I can honestly see the next fight being his last
