The towel should've been thrown in, i mean he was totally un responsive in between rounds, completely gassed and was just taking a unnecessary beating, he needs to go into a camp where they protect there fighters incases where the fighters can't

I completely agree. He needs a different camp who will work out a tactical game plan. A training camp that wont let him get battered for three rounds and a camp that will freaking teach him how to defend standing strikes.

Normally, I would agree with you. However, in Silva's case, it wasn't like he was doing well technically and simply lost due to a superior opponent.

He basically showed that he could use a lot of improvement in proper standup techniques, especially in his defenses. He kept turning his back with hands down and ran along the cage when he's pressured.

It will be tough for him to transform his style at this point but imo only two camps can help him right now.

Nova uniao and Greg Jackson two thinking man's camos. If not these two than ge might aswell just hang em up.

Silva is a good fighter and had a good run...why change camps for this fight with Matt Brown????
If you are winning fights then obviously the camp is good and doing good things for the fighter,Silva was winning fights,then changes for this fight and looked terrible.
There was no clear instructions to him,nothing about attacking Browns ribs,just them trying to rev him up. Bad corner.
I think he should have stayed at his previous camp.Many great fighters there to bounce off.Changing camps cost him this fight.
