This is the first time I have done this.....FanPost thing, so if what I do or how I present this is not perfect, please bare with me as I will try my best and learn. This is a post that I feel should be it's own thread. Now on with my thoughts....
I can’t believe no one has mentioned Silva’s pre-fight demeanor, am I the only one to have noticed it.
Starting with the weigh-in…..what was with his goofy wave and smile to the crowd..didn’t that seem really odd, especially for AS.
Although, his face off with Chris did make me think he was ready.
Then the whole walk in….really f’n weird. The look on his face, not the same.
It totally reminded me of when Tyson lost to Buster, the look on his face, not the same.
It was really similar…. the look on his face and his overall body language.
Then I thought I was just imagining it, because, I was really pulling hard for Chris.
Turns out, I was right.
And you know, for me…..these 2 fights are just poetic justice coming home to roost. Anderson’s mean arrogance, his rationalized disrespect….has caught up to him.
Even though I recognize this….ugghh, I really did not like seeing his leg break like that, it really turned my stomach.
Last point, during the hype shows for ufc 168, I recall how AS was saying how this was his come back and all. And all I could think was…..come back? It’s only been 5 months. This fact is what really caused me to bet my money on Chris. 5 months from the most brutal and only ko of your career…. a tune up or at least a little longer than 5 measly months. Think about it, in the NFL a one hit concussion can cost a player weeks to get right.
As far as GOAT, AS is close, but for me.... Top 3 all time ….Royce, Fedor and Randy. For me, it has to do with what they did and when they did it.
I'd love to see what others think about my thought.
