Anderson Silva lost to Michael Bisping in his return to the Octagon, but he doesn’t agree with the scorecards.

"The Count" was awarded the unanimous decision after five rounds in London, with all three judges scoring the contest 48-47, but "The Spider" believes he was robbed in the main event of UFC Fight Night 84.

"Here’s the deal, you can’t win one way, they try to take it away the other way. That’s it," Silva said in Portuguese after his first decision loss in the UFC. "You saw how that went, right? So, there’s nothing left to say. I fought for you, and that’s it. Thank you for the support. My family, I’m coming back home, I’m fine. Mission accomplished, mission given, but sometimes it’s like in Brazil, total corruption."

Silva now dropped to 33-7 with one no-contest in his MMA career, going winless in his last four UFC bouts. Bisping, who remains unbeaten when fighting in England, improved to 28-7 with his third straight victory.
