    I’m sorry to say that Silva is not the same one anymore…it’s better he retires, he can’t compete anymore with the top 5 middleweights…and i had also the feeling that at the beginning nick diaz could win the fight while they were exchanging punches….maybe it was a fixed fight….anyway thanks for all Spyder!

    I thought this fight isn’t as exciting as it should’ve been.

    Well, of course Anderson wouldn’t perform at his best in this fight as it had been almost a year since he last competed. That kind of time takes a lot out of you. You start feeling nervous again and loose a lot of your confidence which play a huge role in the fighting business. And anyway, it was a great show from the former champ. He did what he had to, beat Diaz standing. And it was all that was needed. I don’t see a reason, why Anderson should have done something that wasn’t necessary. It was an easy fight for him. All of the guys who think this fight shows Anderson should retire have never competed themselves.

    But another question is, does Anderson still have time to get his confidence and easiness back inside the cage – for after all he is 39 years old. But I don’t see a problem there. And anyway, he already is the greatest of them all! Congratz champ!

      You do realise Nick didnt compete in a year aswell, right? thats pretty much one of the biggest things they promoted before this fight.
