Hey JIm Rome, WTF is the "UAE" ??
i agree cut him.....
Ahhhhh Son of a......I thought he messed up on U-F-C
My bad, thanks for educating me.
UFC got dump trucks like Kendall Grove ,Brandon Vera, Nate Quarry, Mike Bisping, & Gabe Gonzaga, that been on losing streaks 4 a while but he want to 86 the champ who haven' lost in the UFC yet. Something
smell fishy like a dirty whore.
At the end of the day, While you are partly true. Don't forget that those people losing, Have also been fighting good fights, and good fighters every single fight.
Vera - Last two fights were Couture and Bones Jones. Nothing wrong with losing there.
Bisping - Henderson and Silva.
Once you get near the top of UFC in a division of middleweight or up, You're always fighting top competition. Just saying records don't mean everything.
Ha Ha, would've bin funny if he had
If they cut Silva, Strikeforce will pick him up and then the ultimate match of A. Silva VS Fedor will happen !!!!!!!!!
As much as I hate S.F. I would like to see that fight.
Sweeet. Never liked AS
Comoooon, a man isn't allowed to dislike silva now?? where do you get off???? :d
Thats what IM saying! Haki got all butt hurt and called me racist because I dont like him, typical blackguy with a chip on his shoulder.
-we will never see tito fight again in the UFC
-kimbo slice must win TUF to get a contract
-we offer 30 millions 6 fight deal for the overrated fedor^^
-and now he said he would cut a.silva??? good joke!!!!
Man I totaly agree
who said that?
U read the writing offer from UFC?
-When i 1st saw Kimbo i never thought he would be an mma fighter
-But then i never thought he would be in the ufc when he got in to mma
-When he got on the Tuff i never thought he would win it *which he didnt*
-He beats a big competitor to get in to the UFC.
The only thing that i think will not happen with Kimbo is he becomes a top competitor or even a champion. I will be shitting bricks if it does. :P
White was quoted saying that.
and one more thing, Anderson didn't destroy Hendo, OK he won but he didn't destroy the guy! cut the shit Dana
Strong point. Hendo easily won round 1.
Dana is too dumb to keep hardcore fans interested anymore.
Uhh yeah he kinda did. Okay Hendo controlled him the 1st round but come the 2nd he was destroyed in the stand-up. He got hurt so bad that he started walking away in pain. Then on the ground he just kept getting hit, got his back taken and choked. Pretty much a destruction.
Hendo got caught in the second round, ended up on the ground and Silva submitted him. Getting caught by a fighter you were beating does not mean that you don't stand a chance against that fighter ever.
And if Silva just ran over Hendo explain to me why when the time for the rematch came about Silva refused to sign the contract? Silva knew that he could have lost that fight and really did not want to fight Hendo again. Hendo realized that he would never get a rematch vs Silva and that is why he left the UFC, what is the point when the champ won't fight you.
That is the point the guy on MMA Live was making about that the problem is that Dana has allowed Silva's manager to pick his fights which has lead to him fighting people which have no chance what so ever to beat him. This also lead to Hendo leaving and that is the reason they ended up without a challenger for Silva, it all comes down to failing to resign Hendo, biggest mistake of Dana's career.
Didnt u just say on the last Anderson Silva related thread that you were "Sick of Anderson Silva" and "You didnt care about him anymore." So why so much interest again suddenly? Even tho on that same thread you posted that you had posted like 5 times before finally posting that!
yea cut him and be the most hated man in mma, giving him stupid tittle fights and then you want to cut him off the ufc, good luck in the future dana
Cutting AS = A huge pick up for Strikeforce and the possibility of the greatest superfight of all time; Fedor Emelianenko V Anderson Silva. Make it happen Dana!
i agree but there is still that think about what the fans want to see, i hope in the future everything is about rankings and records and be all about the fighting and not just about getting money and entertain people, more kind off like tournaments
Man... I'don't know why but your post has drawn a smile across my face ;-)
Im guessing Dana chose Sonnen as his next opponent because he is already began some trash talking against Silva, so he will promote the fight very well. Other then that, choosing an opponent who's main skill set is wrestling, may cause this fight to be less then spectacular. They should of put him against Vitor, because im pretty sure it would have been a stand up fight.
I agree. Actually the whole time that i was watching the silva maia fight, all i could think was, I wish this was Vitor fighting him
It may work out though. Sonnen is a wrestler but he is aggressive. The main reason the fights AS has had with Jiu Jitsu guys have been lackluster is because AS likes to work of of his opponents mistakes and since these fighters haven't been too aggressive (until the last round with Maia) there hasn't been much of a show. Sonnen is going to go right after Silva and probably get KOd or submitted in the first or second unless he can pass Silva's guard in which case we might see a long, grinding fight.
Well, You and every body below, should really actually follow MMA or the UFC in general before you get all critical about "Dana" choosing his next opponent based on hype or trash talk! The fight at 109, Marquardt vs Sonnen, was dubbed a #1 contender match in which the winner would face the winner at 112, which was supposed to be Belfort vs Silva. However, as we know it wasnt Belfort. THATS why he is the next fight.......Why in the hell do u think Sonnen has been so interested in Anderson Silva??? What do u think he is Brock and Sonnen is Mir lol.....Anyways, there is your free lesson for the day!!
haha! If Dana fires Anderson Strikeforce will grab him and rise even faster than it is. It might even suit him. Anderson knows he's likely the greatest and most entertaining fighter on the planet. And Stikeforce would give him the sideshow fights against ex-boxers and baseballs players ans such that would get the highest ratings ...
Dana is a little bitch who is holding back the UFC from getting major TV network support.
You're starting to make some good point. Let Dana cut Anderson Silva and I'm 500% sure Strikeforce will LOVE to have him and they will treat him like GOLD.
the only problem is there is no one to fight, except fedor. So it will only be 1 fight.
I don't get Dana, why is he giving Silva another easy opponent? Who the heck is Sonnen? He didn't beat anyone good, he is far too one dimensional. Silva proved once again, that he is not best P4P, so stop protecting him Dana, give him to a real competition, give him to Rampage, Machida, Shogan, or anyone else who can really hurt him!
You dont watch alot of mma do you? not even alot of ufc? Did u watch sonnen vs marquardt? My advice, go watch that fight. You gotta give silva sonnen and vitor, which i bet both will get a title shot. well they basically both have. But other than that, who do you want to give him in the MIDDLEWEIGHT class, seeing as thats where he is the champ.. Michael Bisping?? maybe wanderlei, but that would be more of a point and laugh as wanderlei gets knocked out fight
I'm not sure you watch a lot of MMA either. What makes you and Dana W think that Sonnen is a better opponent than the rest of the guys for Anderson Silva. Didn't you watch the Anderson Silva's fight against Dan Henderson?
I usually agree with u Underdog, but Sonnen beat Nate for the rights to this fight.........So tired of telling people this. Do people read the other posts or do they just come back and check on how many "sharps" they got?
I watch plenty of MMA, not here to prove this, and I saw the fight, but just because a fighter was good against one fighter, doesn't mean he would be good against another. Silva needs an opponent with a very heavy hands - striker, not another wrestler. And if you look at Sonnen's record, he is not a top guy to be fighting Silva. Oh and I do believe that Silva is not a natural Middle weight, he needs to step up, so he can fight real threat.
THANK YOU WARCRAZED!! Someone is paying attention!! I refer you to my response up above on this thread as well as 20 more times on other threads.....109 was a #1 contender match Marquardt vs Sonnen. Sonnen won, hence Sonnen gets next shot!!!
Sonnen has proved to be a contender thats how he got his shot. So tell me mr mma expert, which fighter other than vitor would u put up against him? I agree that vitor is the only true option. But to say Sonnen isnt a contender and we are in for another boring fight is false. And silva needs an opponent with heavy hands? i dont agree with that. I think silva would pick them apart.. Silva needs to fight someone well rounded, someone who can strike but also someone who can take him down.. The only thing a striker is good for against silva is giving us an entertaining fight as silva knocks him out
Mayhem Miller, Nate Marquadt, Yushin Okami, Dan Miller. Yeah he hasn't beat anyone good.
Decision wins against not top 10 contenders, while loosing many by KOs and submissions, I am NOT impressed by his performance!
Can u mention the top contenders on Anderson division?
I'm a NOT fan of Silva either, Silva is overrated, but Sonnen is still a shit opponent for him.
Chael lost to Jeremy Horn 3 times ...
cutting silva if he screws off again makes sense to me. dana made silva what he is today if it wasnt for him constantly promoting him as a the p4p king and protecting him from fights that he stands a good chance to lose he wouldnt even be in the disscusion. from danas standpoint he can say i made this guy what he is today if he doesnt want to play ball i can make another and throw him to the wolves. it kinda sucks but its true
I like how Dana always brings up how he has "supported" Silva by calling him the best P4P in the world. That's his job! He's a promoter. I really wish he would stop crying. It's getting really old.
You never know what you got until it's gone. Cutting Anderson Silva will be the biggest mistake Dana W will ever make and he will regret it for the rest of his life. If he cuts Anderson Silva, he will lose a lot of other big name fighters to Strikeforce and it will be the end of the UFC.
Oh, and Dana uses the world "literally", too often and seems to not really know what it means. It is not a synonym of "seriously". Not at all.
I think its just Dana's ploy to try to keep Silva in line. Dana is not stupid to let him go...As far as Sonnen is concerned - he is there because of the media hype - he is the only one bashing Silva - so hey, worthy or not I hope he brings it to Silva.
OMG.......*Sigh*.....UFC 109....#1 contender match......Marquardt vs Sonnen...Sonnen won. Seriously guys, why are you on the UFC thread if you dont watch it?
I thought winning 11/12 fights in a row really meant something good in MMA since fighters can barely win 5 or 6 fights in row. I guess i was wrong.
Anderson the p4p ovarated cun in the world hahahahahaaahahaaaa i said if every body remember this fight gona be Standup comedy
Dude I wish someone would steal your keyboard! Its not even your opinion, because you are entitled to one. You are just so obnoxious and annoying!! You are like if someone gave Cartman off Southpark an account on LowKick!! Seriously tho, FALL DOWN.
Dana is Dana and he is pure black & white, His way is the only way.
I really do not think Andersin would care less if Dana cuts him or not. There are other organizaions out there and I guarantee you Scott Cocker would be on Anderson like fly on shit!
I take it Dana is going to make a guideline on his future contracts sayin:
1) No taunting
2) No runnung from opponent
3) 200 punch minimun
4) No King Mo entrances
5) No breakdancing
6) No name calling
7) No sexual activities with the Ting Girls
8) No talkng to Jim McMahon
Forget the deal about Fedor just find out firs who is the best HW in UFC I think is Cain than make copromote with Strikeforce one fight champion vs champion Scot is wredy from yesturday
Dana said he will cut Silva if he acts like that again! DIdn't you listen to the interview??? If you had an employee or partner who said over and over again that this will no longer happen, etc etc. but he keeps on doing it for more than 3x, what are you gonna do??? YOu will just let him play around in the biggest organization in MMA? UFC is bigger than Anderson Silva and if you were Dana White, you will not allow any fighter to make a fool out of you and the UFC. Stupid.
Dana has to stop whinning man! Who cares! It is what it is! Anderson has nothing to prove to anybody! He has backed his shit up from day one at the UFC and made Dana MILLIONS! Are you going to tell me Dana is going to dictate a fight the way he wants it to be? Dude please, every fight is not going to be hunkie-dory!
How is Anderson playing around with the UFC? How? He fought a fight the way he wanted to and it worked! It was not the best performance, it was not pretty, but he freaking WON!
Dude, that is a ridiculous statement “making the UFC look like a fool?” You would think as a president of a company would conduct himself in a more professional manner and not break the world record for how many “F” words he uses in a sentence and yell and talk shit about his fighters or other fighters outside his ORG when things are not going his way!
Dude, whatever, Dana is tries to have everyone of his fighters and partners walk on EGG-SHELLS threatening his frighters to be CUT if they don’t give up the rights to a video game or end business relations if their partners talk to another competitor (Affliction)!!!
Screw the monopoly bro, there are plenty of homes out their that would welcome Anderson in a heart-beat.
Wow! I agree with you big time.
..and where is Affliction?
There are plenty of homes out there, no doubting that. Too bad they are all in the projects..
Your right on. Silva won, again! I wish everyone would watch the Maia fight again and just watch Maia. He threw 4 real punches and kicks in the first round and only 7 in the second. Maia had to have known he was down on points and never went all out for the victory! My point is sometimes fights don't turn out to be epic, it happens. A BJJ great vs. the best striker in MMA will not always be a battle when the BJJ fighter tries and fails to take down the opponent, in this case 13 times.
Anderson won! I give him credit for that. And if Maia didn't like Silva's attitude during the fight then he had 25min to do something about it.
Sonnen is a right winged homophobe who I can't wait see humiliated by Silva. Sonnen is looking for the big pay-check. He brings nothing to this fight accept more aggression than the BJJ fighters Anderson has fought in the UFC. I don't see this one going more than 2 rounds.
Good luck Silva!
You forgot to 'sharp' yourself on that second post ;p
GSP vs SILVA on Spike or Silva vs Sonnen on Spike only way to make it up to the fans Dana
I think it would have to be Sonnen. Why would GSP want to take the paycut and lose out on the epic ppv numbers a fight between him and Silva could produce?
Silva lost a lot of fans after that event, i didn't like the way he goaded Maia to attack him but then did little attacking himself after the 2nd round, it was a poor performance by his own standards i'm sure but i also think Maia could have done a little more too, He seemed hesitant and even intimidated at times. Maia should have taken full advantage of Silva bieng off of his game like that, it doesn't happen often after all. It makes you wonder what could have thrown him so completely and affected his game to such a degree after the 2nd round, only he knows the answer to that one. I still think Silva will destroy Sonnen, infact, even more so now...........
If Dana cut him, Silva could go anywhere and make tons of cash, so o'well.
and we will get to see him fight some legit strikers for once
For those who don't know why Sonnen is fighting Anderson Silva is because Sonnen vs. Marquardt was a #1 contenders fight. It was said before the fight. And the reason for it being a #1 contenders fight is because Marquardt had earned another shot at Silva, so they threw him someone they thought he was going to walk through and he ended up getting beat. Just because the one they thought was going to win didn't win doesn't mean they can go back on their word and not let Sonnen have a title match. I'm not saying Sonnen will win, but this is why he gets the title shot over every one else.
Also bcause Vitor has just begun to train again after recovering from an injury a few months back so the Sonnen fight can be cleared and made in a more timely fashion.
As for the way Anderson was acting in the ring the first few rounds, I didn't love it, but I understand why he did it. He wanted to humiliate Maia into punching, which Maia wouldn't do. He even put his chin out and hands down, still no punches from his oppenent. Silva was frustrated the first few rounds because he is a striker who like Machida, likes to counter. You know what Maia is, A BJJ expert that had no answer for Silva. I also feel Silva tired a bit in the 4th and 5th and he stayed away from Maia to end the fight with a victory. HE WON! He deserves credit for that against a top five 185er.
Good luck Silva against Sonnen!
Atleast someone has been paying attention....I have had to explain that atleast twice on this thread and on multiple other threads!!
Dana is serius he will kick Anderson out of the UFC i never herd any one get BOOOED so mutch in 3-4 fights.Everything was fin until anderson start fighting fans in Octagon start BOOOOO'ING
For me is beter fighter to lose fighting then run like chicken
And YOU are the middleweight champion of what?
Anderson also landed a number of accurate strikes, kicks and knees! He also stuffed 13 take down attempts easily! He is the Champion! You have to take the belt from him and Maia wasn't able to do it. He wasn't even close to being able to do it. You can hate on Silva but at 185 he is in a class by himself right now! If you want to see action, put him in with strikers or more aggressive fighters. If you put him in with BJJ experts he should use his striking skill and stay on the outside and win the fight! The goal is to win!
And for all the people who didn't like that he was talking during the fight, well guess what! The opponent has 25min's to let his skills do the talking. Anderson gave Maia plenty of opportunities to do this and Maia wanted none of it.
Keep winning Silva and before you knock out Sonnen, Please! Please! Clown for a round so I can see that tool, Dana White, back out on his Bull-Sh#%t talk about cutting you.
He's the MW Champion of the TBFC (Toni's Bedroom Fighting Championship)
if dana cuts him out strikeforce will have the 2 top fighters off mma fedor n silva
no he wont....
Dana is just trying to save face after that last circus, he wont cut Anderson. He will make a lot more off him & he knows that, at least hes keeping you guys busy I suppose.
I hope Anderson clowns Chael even harder than Maia. The crazy antics are what will get new fans talking about the UFC ... not overly (totally fake) respectful fights.
Anderson Silva IS MMA. Even if he goes on to pee on other fighters while in the octagon, I'll be a fan.
I worry people don't see what Anderson is doing, I think he's trying to set himself aside from all other fighters. The negative attention will make him known to the general sports fan not just MMA nuts. He knows what Dana wants and he is rebelling. He's likely the only UFC fighter who can do that and feel secure ... he's got a perfect record in the UFC. I think Anderson wants to be a sports legend like his idol Ali.
Fake respectful fights?
Just stop right there, nothing else you say has any relevance after that you moron...fake lmao
im so pissed about sonnen!! what a waste of time
Were is Anderson's firs fight video were he kissed the guy on the lips and got raped on the ground.and i now wuy lots of people suporded him becos he is GAY
OMG! He lost his first fight?!?! Okay, now I see your point and will agree with all of your BRILLIANT posts. Also, who cares if Anderson is gay? I don't. I would still be just as scared of him gay as I would be if he is straight.
haha, your scared of gays
Takes one to know one.....Fall Down.
Personally I would love for Silva to be cut, maybe banned from MMA.
Wow that sure is alot of hate for a guy who doesnt care u exist! Did Silva bang out your mom or something? Does he owe u back child support? Oh and once again I see that you are carrying on about The Spider after claiming in previous threads that u "didnt care about him anymore." Seriously tho, I am gonna just start referring to you as Frank Mir Jr. from here on out......its getting kinda creepy my friend!!
