    Nearly every time in he fights in the UFC he gets beat up.

    I was under the impression that most of Silva's hype was gone after the Dong fight.

    I don't know, and they keep calling him a "kid," and a "young prospect," he's almost 30. They try to count out Rory after every loss to a top 5 when he's 5 years younger.

    He sort of has BJ Penn syndrome. Looks amazing in his wins but then he cant seem to get it done in the big fights. Cardio mostly imo.

    Everyone forgets how highly touted he was before his last fight with Fitch. He was coming off of some dominant victories.

    People really hate on the guy for some reason. He's exciting and finishes fights. That's more than someone could say for most of the other people in the UFC. There's no shame in losing to Fitch, DHK and Brown.

    But for some reason people just hate the guy. Probably because of his hair.

    he's a goldmine if he hit the big time - handsome & knockout power = very marketable, but he's just not the full package as far as skills.
