    Did he get a Carwinesque system shutdown or wth happened?

    At the end of rd1 he was on top doing his GnP and being dominant.

    At the start of rd2 he comes out of the corner breathing heavy with his mouth open and he just basically stops fighting. I know Silva landed that uppercut, but Soa looked sloppy even before that.

    Sadly, his gas tank is terrible and always has been. He has tremendous power but he knew, he just could not lift his arms up to fight back. Silva won by conditioning alone.

    He's always exhausted as soon as the fight gets out of rd.1 Whether that's physical or mental I don't know, but looked like he got tired and wanted out.

    I heard that he spent a lot of time partying, rather than training, whilst in Thailand, which would explain his non-existant gas-tank. I've no proof of this, though.
    Pls no h8.

    I hate to be a gossiper, but the signs are all there.

    If you don't then you should STFU. It's these type of gossips that get spread around quick and eventually become some kind of truth.

    2nd round he looked very tired. Bigfoot surprisingly appeared to be more calmer and not out of breath.

    What happened? Bigfoot showed up for this fight. People don't get Bigfoot enough credit for the opponents he's fought. Sure he hasnt' had a win in over 2 years but look at who he's fought. Soa was Bigfoot's easiest fight in the last 5 years no doubt about it.

    Yeah, I also read that somewhere. To further the rumor, it was said he spent as many if not more days with Thai hookers as he did training, supposedly his time in Thailand was a bust and not well spent.

    Calm down, I know it's you, Soa. You're right, though, I should substantiate my claims before posting anything. We'll wait a few days and see if anything comes out.

    I think a guy from Austrailia posted it in the fight discussion thread after he lost, also said that Mike Swick was so pissed he didn't even want to make the fight to corner him.

    I watched this fight with people who train with Soa and they didn't seem surprised. Whether it was anything more than not taking it seriously, likely only Soa knows, but Bigfoot had some decent odds.... What was 2nd rnd KO paying?

    We know Soa doesn't like getting hit and Bigfoot is a big guy, so who knows.
