I haven't been near a computer all weekend. I have read about 10 posts pertaining to this weekends event.
I have never been so happy watching MMA as when I heard the scores in the BJ fight. I jumped out of my chair and may have pulled something. BJ looked like he wanted to lose from the second round on. In the fourth and fifth he was dropping his hands consistently. For those who believe that BJ doesn't have cardio troubles any more, may I present exhibit A. He was half the speed of Edgar and should have come in with a plan to change that. Maybe taking someone down and taking their strengths away from them is a good idea (see St. Pierre, Georges). Where does he go now? Does Florian get another title shot while BJ fights a top contender? Does BJ just go to Welterweight and get smothered by big wrestlers? Does Edgar take a spot in the P4P talks now? He is the best Lightweight in the world now, right? Was this a fluke? It seemed there was a couple fighters who weren't quite themselves on Saturday, did it have anything to do with the location?
Anderson Silva has always been a grade 'A' douche. He has no excuse for Saturday and I will skip all future events he headlines. He is the most boring Champion the UFC has ever had. I thought the way Maia won the last few rounds they should have given him the fight(he didn't win, but AS needs a slap). He won the second half of the third and the fourth and fifth. In my books that there is a "W". I was annoyed when he was jumping around swearing at Maia and more pissed off when he pulled his best Kalib Starnes impersonation out of the trick bag. Next time leave the dancing shoes at home Silva and come to compete. I remember Rogan talking about Silva moving to Welterweight with a win. I hope he still plans on doing that because GSP will kill this fool. He has zero respect for anyone but himself and I hope to see him asleep in a bloody mess inside the octagon very soon.
