Naw, he was more of a cat who didn't expect the mouse to bite back at him.

He said Maia dissed him, which is ironic... I guess!?
I think NOW after the kapoera and the Machida impersinations mid fight people might realize that showboating is exacly what they said Evans did and shouldn't and what A.Silva does ALL THE TIME!

I gotta agree that showboating is weak. I have always been a fan- of his abilities. The showboating doesnt rub me right.
However, if anyone should be allowed to showboat, or taunt, or otherwise exude some form of assclownery, it better be the champ or close to it.
Still, even Silva shouldnt be showbtg as he apparently didnt follow the showoff with devastation.
I will shutup until I see it tonight but I'm already wondering "what were the champs thinking".
I should maybe add that it seems to be this stupid ex-shooto romo story;
Maia trains with Wanderlei and Shogun, so Anderson seems to think this is an extension of their earlier feud.
Pretty faggotish, actually.
He won me over with this one:

In the BJ fight, I almost had a flashback about Andy Wang.
I honestly never want to see another Anderson Silva fight again!!! What a waste of my time! I may as well have been watching ball room dancing.

Gezere: paraphrase from Bas Rutten, Never escalate the level of violence in fight you are losing. :D
kettlebell workouts give you “cardio
without the dishonour of aerobics”.
Who can stop Silva from fighting the way he does? Dana White needs him more than Silva needs Dana White.
How do you figure? I thought dana was the one with vastly more money and tons of other middleweight fighters. Silva doesnt have a lot as far as mainstream popularity if he leaves ufc.
