Blame it on your corner for saying you were up when you werent Diaz

The only thing worse then them telling him that would be him believing it..

Diaz was fighting for a paycheck. Silva was fighting just to prove he can still do it. Different priorities and it showed.

That fight didn't live up to the hype, sorry. It was sad to watch, he should retire. That was like when Jordan came back the second time. There were moments but the footwork looked horrible by AS standards.

It was a chess match because Diaz didn't engage like he usually does it has nothing to do with Anderson looking bad, Diaz just tried to outbox him and it made for a slower pace fight because Silva obviously isn't going to bite on taunts he loves to counter but Diaz didn't give him anything to counter.

1st fight back I'd say give him the 1 fight to get ring rust back, see how he does next fight. Everyone says ring rust is real, why cant it apply to Silva?

I definitey respect that Anderson got back in there, but to me it's still an embarrassment to mma, I think we are selfish as fans in wanting to see him fight again. Sure he got more loose as the fight went on, and Diaz definitey messed with his head early.
mma deserves better. All of a sudden I'm pissed off about this cm punk thing too.

I dunno anymore.

As a main event I expect a high level fight. Sure we didn't know how silva would react in there but I'm just annoyed by that fight. Like I said I don't know. Just annoyed by that.

All hate aside, Diaz was not there to fight, and Silva's foot work was horrible by his standards, like a basketball player after they blow their knees out. He has lost something that isn't going to come back.

I actually thought Silva moved around well. It just looked like the Cote, Maia and Thales fight because Diaz didn't engage him like we thought so of course it's gonna be disappointing because Silva isn't going to make himself open for Diaz.
