Everyone saying this was a 'freak accident' wants to buy into an alternate reality... when the truth is there was nothing Silva threw in the second fight that found its mark, including that kick. He got dropped with a punch, beaten up badly on the ground, and shut down in the second with a move Chris practiced a gang of times in preparation of the fight.
Nobody is the best forever, and Silva isn't the best anymore. When Fedor was getting stopped for the third time in a row people were still explaining it all away.
Travis lutter full mounted silva, chael owned him for 4 n a half rounds and 1 round the second fight, hendo controlled him for a round, maia had his fun for a round,
silva gets put in bad situations in a lot of fights and still pulls it off most times, that's why even tho its a win, this fight has an astric next to it for me
