Let's start by saying I'm a huge Anderson fan and I have not rewarded the fight yet. My first thoughts of the fight was that Anderson clearly won but after reading some tweets from very experienced people I saw that it might not have gone the I thought. That aside, the reason I feel bad is that I've gotten the impression that Anderson feels forced to win in this highlight reel fashion every time. Let's be honest here, if Anderson would have won the way bisping won he would've got sh*t on by everyone and people saying he's done and to hang the gloves. If you noticed, he threw that inverted upward elbow about 6 times and tried setting it up more than I could count. This might just be the fan boy in me but it seemed like he could have taken that fight at some points and held back because it wasn't as "impressive" as we expect from him. For example around the time of the first head kick and the time he front kicked him. He could have gone in and finished tko on either in my option. This all might be my mind in denial but did anyone else kinda get the same vibe? Andersons the only fighter I've seen dominate another fighter (demien Maia) and get sh*t for it cause it wasn't some tony jaa type ko. We expect too much, yeah he plays around but that's part of his game to open opponents up.
