Don’t have much to say about the fight. Thales obviously wanted to fight on the ground and even took Anderson down, but couldn’t keep him there. I really disliked it when Thales would just fall to his butt and expect Anderson to jump on top of him; but even more disappointing was Anderson’s lack of aggressiveness. He never seemed like he wanted to finish the fight. Halfway through the third round … we just decided to go home. It’s not the first time that Anderson has done this to me. When he fought Cote, it was about the same thing. Next time we have a party and Anderson is on the card…. Well, I’ll just say that at least I can expect to take a bathroom break or to go grab a refreshment when it comes time for him to fight. I heard Dana’s comments after the fight and how he was embarrassed. I don’t think Dana should be embarrassed all he can do is put the fighters in the octagon and once again I was a little surprised to hear Dana say this; but Dana White is a man who speaks what’s on his mind.”

I have to agree with Hughes here. Not to the point where I won't watch but from now on, I won't expect much in the way of excitement.

Hey, Anderson...

Matt Hughes is not impressed by your performance!

I posted before Silva's last fight that imo he had become too cocky and I was starting to want to see him de-throned. I got a bit of comeback for those coments but hopefully now those people can understand what I was saying.

First time I ever agreed with Matt Hughes.

cant believe i'm bout to say this, but i kinda agree with hughes, it woulda been better if he woulda left the part about,"its not the first time hes done this to me." out.

but my take on it for anderson is, ok........they arent really giving me great talent, i know i'm good, hell i'm the champ. i'm also a fighter for a living and i got kids to feed. i'm gonna finish these guys fast, not get hurt, get paid, then sign another contract for more $. i've already proven i can fight at 205, why not test those waters a lil deeper.

thats what i would do if i was him.

this is starting to remind me of when big tim was on top. dude used to be very aggressive, really take it to guys, then got on top and started just fighting to "not get beat" not fighting to win and everyone turned on him. i hope this doesn't happen to anderson, he is an awesome talent but these last two fights....i don't know, we'll just have to wait and see i guess.
