    Silva doesn't want a rematch.

    Maybe in the re-match he will actually act like he is in a UFC fight!

    I know Anderson was getting grief when he was actually trying to win fights, carefully. But the answer is not to showboat, sheesh.

    Maybe this was a severe case of burn out. Watching the fight, I think Anderson wanted to lose. He damn sure didn't look like he was interested in winning.

    I refuse to bitch when I get my directv bill cause this was absolutely fucking worth it. We have watched the crown get passed to another generation and it was worth 44.99.

    Especially considering his post fight comments regarding his future, and no longer fighting for the belt I'd say this seems pretty likely.

    If he was going to phone one in, I'd have thought he'd have done so with a superfight.

    I suppose when you've had that many wins in a row, been a champion for that long, everyone around you has worshipped the entire time, you might start thinking you're invincible.

    I think the other big mistake he made was attempting a loose De La Riva guard which lead to the leglock attempts.

    Sign champion up for 10 more extremely highly paid fights, have him lose interest in fighting and drop the title in a lackluster performance in the first fight on the contract.

    Joke's on Zuffa, for once.

    I really liked this fight. It was a good night. I like Anderson, and yet I'm kind of glad to see him humanized at the same time. I hope there is a rematch because I think Andy is the better fighter and I'd love to see how his game plan changes after this.
