Anderson Silva may have 8 losses, and while its not good to make excuses so many of them are not "real" losses if you know what I mean. His first 3 losses are legit. One by decision like 20 years ago, and two submissions (one oof them being one of the best submission victories of all time IMO). Then he has a "loss" to Okami, for an illegal upkick. It wasn't a real loss, and should just be a DQ. Plus SIlva knocked him out with that kick lmao. Not only that but Silva proved the "loss" to be a "fluke" or meaningless since Silva destroyed Okami in the rematch. His next two losses came from Weidman. The first KO, was a KO in every sense of the word. However, IMO there is a difference between KO'ing someone while they havee high guard, and KO'ing someone while they are goofing around. Silva was acting too ridiculous, and payed for it bg time. Weidman capitalized on it, and rightfully won. However. therre is a difference between KO'ing someone off balance with their chin up, and neck back with no support at all, and KO'ing silva with his guard up. Because Silva has never been knocked out while fighting serious. However, weidman rightfully got the win, but a win over a careless goofing around silva. The 2nd KO from weidman, cannot b considered a legitimate KO. The "TKO" when silva broke his leg has mroe to do with Silva than with weidman. That 2nd "KO" is not something to brag about, since Silva simply broke his leg from a leg kick that he threw... Then Silva "loss" to Bisping. Silva gave bisping a terrible beating. Silva was busting his face up, to the point where bisping wasn't even recognizable. Whereas Silva looked like he came out of a serious sparring session. Silva also landed one of thee most devastating "picture perfect" flying knees on Bisping. Bspiing was essentially knocked out. If Silva landed that knee just 5 seconds before the bell, and then followed up with punches it would be a KO for sure. After the knee, Silva kind of just didnt care, and bisping edged rounds 4 and 5. But silva not only did more damage, have better moments in the fight, but he also essentially knocked bisping out. But he still lost to a close decision in Britan. Bisping is the king of getting undeserved decisions, especially if its in Britan. If that fight were anywheere else dana white, joe rogan, weidman, and etc... all agree that he wouldvee easily went to Silva. Then he has his loss to Daniel Cormier. However, you have a prime Daniel cormier against a slow 41 year old Anderson Silva; who took the fight on two days notice... Its also key to point out that silva was outstriking him in the 3rd round, and had the best moment of the entire fight when he landed a very hard body kick on cormier. I honestly think that had the fight gone two more rounds, that silva could've taken it. Seeing cormier's weakness to body shots, Silva would just be landing body kicks and liver shots for the rest of the fight. So while he may have more losses than GSP, Jon Jones, Fedor, Aldo, MM, Cruz, and etc... Many of his losses can b "excused" or are not "real losses". I know I'll get flack for coming up with excuses but its true. BTW sorry if spelling is terrible. My laptop keys are all messed up and jammed.
