He is good but for some reason he acts like he can walk on water and not get wet and I for one am sick of it.
I agree, but to be honest I wouldnt be surprised if I watched Anderson strole across a lake and emerge on the other side dry as the Sahara.
You know they said J.C. couldn't do it either.
Jesus walking on water = Anderson fighting without taking damage
I know its not the same but when
Anderson fought Leben- landed 100% of strikes thrown and never really got hit
Anderson fought Irvin- Landed 100% of strikes and no damage taken
Anderson fought Griffin- Danced around and ko'ed him effortlessly
Anderson fought Leites- landed kicks thrown backwards, punched him in the leg while standing a few times
When he fights, he makes his opponents look like amateurs.(and not just leites, leben, or irvin) He made Griffin, Franklin, Marquardt, etc. all look like they didnt even belong in the UFC.
Anderson has cleared out an entire division effortlessly (Lutter and Hendo may of had dominant positions, but a few minutes later, they were both tapping)
He may not be Jesus Christ (or Chuck Norris) but he has done some of the most amazing things i have ever seen in MMA and who knows he may be able to walk on water.
I have always had doubts in silva(thinking and picking against him in about 1/3 of his fights) but after his destruction of forrest im still a little Awe struck and dont see anyone on his same level.
Seriously watch the Griffin fight again, Griffin has put up a tough fight against every single one of his opponents(ortiz, rampage,shogun, rashad) But he couldnt do anything to Silva
And when it comes to fighting training partners, I know a couple of guys that i look at like brothers and i would never do anything to jeopardize there next paycheck or show there weakness that i know of to competitors.
When you win, your paycheck climbs, when you lose it drops and is coupled with the risk of being fired. So for me personally i understand not fighting those closest to you.
