His behaviour was cetainly bizarre At first it looked like he was trying to syke and wind himself up or just goad maia into making a mistake or even just open up (as he was hesitant for the first 2 rounds) but when Maia opened up Silva just disengaged.

He's obviously frustrated/ annoyed about something wonder if he has issues outside the cage

Just like everybody, whatever respect i had for that man is completely gone now. I dont understand why he would continue to signal to Maia to fight him yet he wouldn't go in himself. Just goes to show that he must of had some fears in that cage and was overshadowing them with his disrespectful antics. He just became the guy that deserves to get knocked out the most in my book, even more than lesnar.

If more people tried to knock him out he'd be more exciting.

Where was his attempt to knock someone out? His striking is awesome, what gives? Other than that Knee he was throwing shots that my 10 year old Cat would shake off.

AS looked like a complete fool.... the guy just personified arrogance throughout the fight. That whole 2nd round was awkward to watch.....he talks respect and honor, but that was as classless as you can get. If I was Maia there's no way I woulda shook his hand after that garbage.....

On a side note why didnt Anderson have the red tape round his gloves? Isn't that part of the process, having the gloves taped and signed off by whoever, confirming they have been looked at, and are approved.

This fight kindo of remined me of GSP/Hardy-
The champion won
The underdog lost
The champ fought where the challenger was weakest
The champion never seemed to be in any trouble
The fight was boring imo
Neither champ finished but each won a unanimous decision

ect....

GSP never acted as if he was better then Hardy never show boated. I didn't see it yet so not sure.

Agreed, very different if youre trying to make your opponent look like a fool by taunting, then you can't finish and even get the beat put on you for a while.

Anderson`s fight was more entertaining.

Why do you guys think Anderson wouldn`t/couldn't/didn't finish Maia?

Because he's scared of freak incident losses to vastly superior groundfighters.

Please bring on Vitor vs Anderson. So Belftort can finish him and show him what a real champ does. Vitor brings it all the time. He at least tries. I use to be a big fan of Silva now im disappointed. WTF...
