    Andy is the fucking man.

    With that said I can’t “change your mind” because I can’t reason with the unreasonable, nor can I have a logical discussion with the illogical.

    I never get why people cream their pants so much about this knockout when Silva's performance against Chavez Jr., who's actually a legit boxer, was like 20 times more impressive.

    Ya i mean, kinda fair getting satisfied about the KO for these reasons, but in terms of how impressive it was, it's not close to Silva's performance against Chavez Jr.

    Silva deserves so much more praise for that!

    Oh I agree. It was a split decision and I did t see it so I can't give an honest opinion but from what I read it should have been a clear ud for Silva. Chavez Jr from what I understand isn't "great" boxer but a legit one at that and as well 11 years younger.

    We don't need to see Anderson Silva outbox Ortiz in boxing to know he was great.

    ill favor a fight over a staged dive 1000000% of the time too
    titos head is way too thick to just be flatlined like that. made a point to take a mini nap on the rope before comically falling while faking a knockout face.
    was funny to me
