UFC Quick Quote: Demian Maia calls Anderson Silva's antics at UFC 112 unnecessary and disrespectful

"I thought it was disrespectful. He started to call me bad names during the fight. Stuff like, ‘you're a f**king playboy, come and show me your jiu-jitsu,' things like that. It was unnecessary. Besides, it was a normal fight. He asked for excuses and I think everybody makes mistakes. I think he was influenced after that and came back and said I had disrespected him. I never said anything too serious, and whether I had said it or not, it would be to promote the fight. That is normal."

Coming off a bizarre defeat at the hands of Anderson Silva at UFC 112, Demian Maia spoke to Graciemag about what really went down inside the Octagon last weekend in Abu Dhabi. Various reports have surfaced regarding what Silva had to say during the fight, none of which were exactly flattering. What do we make of this? Does hearing what Anderson really was saying that night infuriate you even more, or could you not care any less? Is there any room in the sport for this kind of behavior? Preach on, Maniacs.
