Neither Anderson, Chael or any fans of each fighter deserve to be hated on because of a comment like that.

I'm not sure if it's scored the same way in the UFC/MMA that when a fighter gets wobbled and his hand touches the mat if it's considered a knockdown, but if it is, well, Anderson was knocked down then. If it isn't scored like that then Chael never knocked Anderson down, it depends on how the scoring is.

I don't see any reason why someone should take hate for a post like that. He's simply saying it's ridiculous that people think Chael actually knocked Anderson down when he truly didn't. Again - it depends on how the scoring is, I don't know if it's the same way as boxing.

Some people on here are so childish.

Chael's thought after Silva II

Next day, "I am still the real champion"

Now, wait, all of a sudden Silva fighting with his hands down and "clowning" is awesome again? I thought it was the dumbest thing he could ever possibly do, and was very much out of character for him?
I still think it was awesome. I love when Silva clowned his opponents man, fought with his hands down and let fighters hit him. That stuff just really excites me.
