"Technically, I really didn't see anything wrong with the way he fought. Who goes in there and fights five rounds with somebody and doesn't even have a mark on his face? Not too many people can do that."

There's some damn good points made in that article.


Look, as rational people we all realize that every fight can’t be a total destruction. It’s possible Silva has spoiled us with his past performances, but there’s simply no way to argue that he went into the fight with Leites with the same approach that he had against Rich Franklin or Dan Henderson. In those bouts he was fighting to win. Against Leites he was fighting not to lose, and possibly fighting not to get hit.

To Silva, that may define a “perfect fight.” He didn’t get hurt, was never in trouble, and didn’t take any risks. That’s smart if your one and only goal is to walk out unscathed and with the belt around your waist at the end of the night. But that’s not the kind of approach that fans are going to reward. Just ask Tim Sylvia.
