yeah yeah yeah who is gonna beat him? who knows right now? no one i can think of. he is the best fighter in the world at 185 hands down. thats not what i want to talk about...
lets talk about his attitude. one thing i always liked about him is he seemed modest and humble and very respectful especially his fights with rich.
ok his fight with lutter he was pissed but thats cuz lutter didnt make weight so that is understandable. i dont remember his interviews pre- or post-fight with nate. but with hendo he talked mad shit. opening of round one hendo put up his hands to touch gloves anderson doesnt even acknowledge him. post fight inside ring he cant say anything respectful about hendo but goes on to say rich is the only other true champion. how disrespectful is that to hendo.
makes me dislike him and want him to lose. hopefully if hendo gets rematch ever i will def be rooting for hendo.
thats what really grinds my gears with silva...other than that he is my favorite fighter to watch.

so what is the point of this thread. cus you kind of asked a question and then just flipped to hating on anderson silva.
not everyone can like everyone in the MMA world. touching gloves thing reminds me of stevenson/guillard. guillard didnt touch when the ref was there and stevenson just got this crazied look on his face it was insane, but then they touched gloves.
but we will just have to wait and see who can beat anderson at 185, because i dont think he will be going up to 205 anymore because anderson was saying it was a favor to dana. MW is starting to rebuild and getting more contenders so anderson hasnt exactly cleaned out the division yet. just have to wait.

Silva - (calm and completely peaceful, as usual) "moosh moosh moosh, moosh moosh moosh moosh moosh Rich Franklin moosh mooshy moosh"
Translator - "im the best and most exciting MMA fighter in the world right now, **** Dan Henderson.. if his old ass was any good he wouldve beaten me the first time. Rich Franklin is the 2nd best fighter in the world.. he could beat Hendo, Kenflo, Kimbo, Gono all in one round... i love you Rich"
point in case, who cares about respect.. Anderson Silva will beat your ass regardless. but yea, he might not if youre Rich Franklin considering he about cried his eyes out after the 2nd assbeating of the century.. i think one more broken nose on poor Rich might just lead Anderson to retiring
post fight inside ring he cant say anything respectful about hendo but goes on to say rich is the only other true champion.

i dont know why he was so hateful toward hendo. hendo has been in the business for awhile and paid his dues. there had to have been some underlying issue between the two, especially after disrespecting henderson in the post-fight interview. i think anderson is feeling alittle invincible right now, which i dont agree with. but he is still a fighter i dont mind watching.

Silva is probably mouthing off to everyone after fights, but his translator is just too nice.
