Wanderlei Silva is one of the UFC's most beloved fighters, an honor he has earned through a long career filled with memorable fights and an easy to appreciate desire to put on thrilling fights. At UFC 139 he picked up a very big win after stopping Cung Le with strikes in the second round.

Now Silva tells MMA Heat's Karyn Bryant that Cung Le should thank him for the beating he handed out. Best quote from the video (ht: MMA Mania):

He's a really good fighter, he's a tough, tough guy. Right now with that nose, he's going to make more money in Hollywood because now he looks like a more real fighter. He should thank me for making his nose look better. For his job, it's so good.

Why are some fans acting as though Silva went in and blasted Le? I had Le winning up until the stoppage. I thought he looked pretty good considering his age and lay off.

I don't think he was winning the round prior to the stoppage. He definitively won the 1st. I'll give you that.

I'd have to watch it again but I remember a noticeably tired Le standing in front of a charging Wandy for the majority of the round until Wandy finished him. Had it not ended when it did, I think it would have been even going in to the third even without the finishing "flurry" from Wandy.

Silva should beat up his doctor for making his nose look worse although it works better. That nose of his is flat as shit
