    Anderson has always goofed around when he fights. Funny how the one fight where he gets knocked out doing it is the one people call a fluke lol.

    I know it's hard to accept Silva lost the belt to the mediocre Weidman but it is what it is man...

    nah, you get KTFOd thats on you. now I would understand if there was water in the octagon causing a fighter to slip or something along the lines of that. but If a guy trying to punch you knocks you out. and you're completely aware that he is trying to punch you... thats on you

    I bet they watch the weidman fights hoping it will change this time for some reason. If anderson clowned like he did,as he does in many of his fights,and won..finished weidman with kicks...no one would have shit to say. But since he clowned and LOST. ohhh anderson could have won but he clowned.

    “When the guys test for the steroids, (they should have) no more fights,” Anderson Silva told MMAjunkie in October.When you use the steroids, you use them for a long time. When you use the steroids for a long time, you have a problem. It’s a drug, and it’s not good for the sport.”



    Too bad not even Anderson agrees with you.

    You're quoting the guy that doesn't believe he used PEDs to begin with. You've kicked yourself in your own nuts.

    ive been very critical of Anderson . Sometimes i find his personality to be fake,his arrogance beyond belief,and sometimes his style unadaptable to certain situations,which makes the fight a chore to watch. PED's? eh i dont bother adding that to the equation. The guy is an amazing fighter,who eventually declined,and met guys who were able to deal with his skills with their own (weidman/bisping) I think his clowning/lack of aggression has to do with his age,conditioning AND troubles dealing with his opponents styles. Yes its hard to swallow for his fans the way he lost the first Weidman fight,but the guy been on top for so long,he was bound to run into some tough times. Hes an all time great,but hes not invincible. If anything would tarnish his image,its you guys not accepting his losses. Fedor is my favorite fighter,and he's lost but i never felt embarassed by him. He always fought with courage and thats all that matters.

    You're just making my point. You brought up an Anderson quote as if it refuted my initial point. I only inserted doubt into what he says so you would stop being a bitch and accept my initial point.

    What the fuck are you even talking about


    I still didn't accept your initial point. It was retarded. Apparently so are you for attempting some form of autistic social engineering on Sherdog.

    If you're too dumb to understand that then this discussion is just boring.

    Good point TS, everyone talks about how his chin is shot and whatever but it's only Weidman that KO'D him. Everything else was questionable.

    anderson "goofed" and " clowned" with forrest, bonnar, maia, leites, cote, and a bunch of other guys and it worked out in his favor. its a part of his style its part of what made him successful hes a counter striker. yet when it backfires you want to call it a "fluke"? live by the sword and die by the sword.

    No I understand that you're an idiot just fine.

    "Anderson's innocent because he thinks he never did steroids."

    Oh...

    well that just settles it then.

    Clearly he's innocent.... along with every other PED user in history.

    Saying Silva's loss to Weidman isn't a legitimate KO is ridiculous!! Silva's style his entire UFC career was just doing that cocky, taunting nothing to get into his opponents head. It worked for a long time and one day everyone knew it would catch up to him. By your definition, since Anderson always fought in that style , if he did get KO'D repeatedly then none of them would have counted? That's crap. You play the game , get tagged ,get KO'D it counts. End of story.

    Same as the kick. Checking a kick takes much practise to get it right .... It's a defence that turns on the offence. By all means it was legit. Just as counter strike landing first for the KO.. It's all in the reflexes

    Silva was undefeated in the cage until almost 40. That speaks for itself.

    Unlike MMA fighters today, he never had a true prime either.

    By that I mean, guys like Anderson or Hendo who were fighting Pre 2000, didn't have the advantage of modern MMA (training, game planning etc) - until their 30s...

    So imagine if these guys were debuting today. They would arguably have the skill set they had in their 30s, in their 20s and would potentially have an even more impressive highlight reel.

    All my favourite fighters are actually undefeated, and all the ones I hate have lost every fight as far as I am concerned.
