    Disrespectful??

    First let me say I've always been a huge Silva fan and defended his actions in the Cote, Leites and even Griffin fight when people thought him offering his hand to help Forrest up was disrespectful...which I didn't really think so but that's a whole nother topic...anyway as I was saying, I've always liked Anderson..but what he did showboating cursing DM and generally acting like a fool was way out of line. I'm with DW when he said in a interview post fight..."I don't mind a little showboating but that was crazy" I mean really Anderson really..? **** he just clowned on him like I've never seen anyone get clowned not even close..and Idk I just thought that was disrespectful as hell and wondering what others think of it. Oh and DM gave it all he had, that was amazing seeing him firing from his knees...that takes some big brass ones knowing you got Anderson above you ready to decapitate you. I hope he does well in future fights.

    I didn't mind the showboating but I did mind when he just walked around and did nothing for two rounds, and the ref had the right idea when he warned silva but should have done it earlier in the 5th round or even in the 4th round.

    I have never laughed so hard when the crowd started cheering GSP.

    I like the class that Hughes and Gracie showed.

    I spent like 10 minutes explaining to my wife what an asshole Matt Hughes is, and then he almost made me like him again

    That was a bit much for me. It's ok to show respect, but it is a fight for pete's sake-knock the guys block off! Meh... Anderson was just like a schizophrenic last night. Bizarre.

    Is class not taking a leg kick TKO when it's available?

    Out of respect and appreciation of your opponent?

    Yes, that would qualify as magnanimity, or 'class'.

    Except that Renzo asked for Hughes' help.

    "Help me up, so we can face-punch each other some more."

    lol...yeah man me also, first the Serra fight now this..he's showed two opponents in a row a great deal of respect. I admire him for that...might not like him but do appreciate him being a great sport. He told Ariel H, that since the birth of his second child he's really mellowed out..said he's in fact a completely different fighter now and hoped this fight with Henzo brought the desire to cause violence out of him..ha.


    Oh and Girljock...I see what you're saying also. It gets really akward between the fighters when it gets to the point Anderson takes it like when he offered to help Forrest up during their fight. I could just sense how odd it made FG feel.


    I wish Junior Dos Santos wasn't with Blackhouse, so Dana could sign that fight. I think JDS might have the speed and power to put something on Silva but then again he might just get clowned like other larger opponenets. It's going to take someone fast and big...or a good wrestler to have the chance of beating AS...imho. He's mos def not invincible and not nearly as unbeatable as i thought, DM got a few really good shots on him in the 5 rd..if that was someone with heavy hands it might of got a bit interesting.

    Anyway rant off...oh nice meeting you guys (and gals girljock) longtime lurker decided to finally make an account....for your troubles........

    oops I owe you a hot chick pic...I failed this go round..lol.
