    The ugly truth.

    And he tried to put a Tony Fryklund back elbow on Bisping a lot of times, in the same country as before so he would be on the news.

    My man lost. But not because the other guy is better or had a better night.

    Must suck to be an Anderson fan to see he hasn't learned from his mistakes over the years. Too much clowning, trying to act cool, and not enough pressure. Big ups to the Count for out pointing, and staying his course during the fight for the Victory!

    He lost to Michael Bisping.

    Bisping was better and had a better night.

    Anderson can't deal with the loss of his aura. He acts as though opponents still have to work to take his belt, and that he can win on his reputation alone. That look of surprise when he heard the decision, not greatly different from the mentality of BJ Penn when Frankie out-struck him consistently. What do they expect when they choose not to turn up and fight most of the rounds?

    Now that fighters are no longer defeating themselves mentally when facing Anderson Silva, he simply has no answer. His fans will catch up to reality, just as BJ Penn's fans had to.

    Bisping did a fantastic job of staying consistent and not being intimidated. He made few mistakes other than dropping his hands twice for the mouth-piece and letting Anderson take advantage. He was the better fighter and it showed. The win was well deserved.

    It never once looked like winning on points crossed Anderson's mind.

    Anderson continually moves into striking range, and throws no strikes. This ain't dancing with the stars, I wanted to see matrix Andy one more time, not this version.

    Either he gets it together after this, or just stop fighting already.

    Agreed. I always talk about character in fighting, and Anderson's smug attitude when he fights got the best of him again. His shitty "carefree" attuide even extended to his corner during this fight.

    I very much enjoy watching fighters lose to their poor habits while underdogs scratch and claw for anything.

    Simply put Anderson gets off on danger and taking risks. There were times you could just see that irresistible urge to flirt with danger come over his face. It seemed the more dangerous the position the more he'd screw around.

    Agreed, Anderson spent that fight entertaining the fans not point fighting haha. He merked bisping whenever he turned it on (Aside from that 2nd round yea yea)
