Hello H2F. Ive missed you guys.

But Ive decided to do a quick drunken post about this topic though I am not well versed in it.

First of all, I must admit (though embarrassingly) that Ive been waiting for this fight for nearly two years. I personally believed that he only person who could ever give Anderson Silva a true run was Vitor. Unfortunately tonight proved otherwise.

This was one of those nights where my heart was with Vitor, but my head was with Silva. I figured that although they both had amazing hands, Anderson had more speed then Vitor, and a more versatile striking ability.

BJJ I gave to Anderson, but I didnt think his gameplan was ever to take it to the ground specifically (Just because I didnt think Vitor would be baited into it).

So anyways, a fight that I had been waiting to see, didnt even last 1 round. Disappointing, but I guess my general point is - I dont think anyone can beat Anderson Silva. Period.

Ive argued about the Sonnen fight with different people, and some of them made some good points, but my personal stance is that Silva went into that fight with a Bull/Matador game plan, and wanted to submit him. The victory there was the ultimate sarcastic response he could give following the Maia fight where he embarrassed him, and took it overboard. It was basically a big middle finger to Dana White, and the rest the world in his own little way.

I think the unfortunate truth is Silva is too well rounded of a fighter, and his gameplan going into fights calls for taking advantage of his opponents weaknesses, to the point of the only thing that can possibly beat him is a way left field, off the wall, unorthodox move out of nowhere....um what the hell happened move (like the famous scissor heel alot of us have youtubed).

If you disagree, please feel free to respond to my drunken post, and expose me for not knowing what Im talking about. But I guess after seeing Silva's performance in a fight that I had been waiting a long time for, thats what Im thinking.

Silva said in the Post Fight Conference that he trained that kick and tried to perfect it with Steven Seagal. Steven Fucking Seagal ftw. lol.

Now it's time for GSP to beat Jake Shields and then go to MW. I believe he's the last challenge for Silva.

If Jon Jones wins the title Rashad says he'll move to MW or HW. I'd love to him fight Anderson.

haha, nice vid.

but hooooooooooooooolyyyyyyyy f..k Silva was awesome last night. Beasting people as always! just when we thought he was starting to be a punk, he knocks out Belfort in the 1st round. crazy ass mother f..ker.

why would Rashad move down to MW or up to HW if Jones got the title?

Jones vs Rua is gonna be retarded. I hope Shogun knocks his tall lanky ass out cold. Speaking of Jones, he was a beast last night. He pretty much showed the world that wrestlers are f..kin useless off they're back. If I was an NCAA div 1 wrestler like Bader and used wrestling 80% of the fight, I'd seriously learn how to f..kin fight off my back at lease... like come on...

and I was honestly surprised to see Griffin take out Franklin like that! I was going for Franklin but really I wanted Griffin to win. Good for Griffin.

ppl better watch out for Cerrone.


and f..k Okami's title shot, I wanna see GSP vs Silva!! unless the UFC can make it happen quick enough and allow us to watch Silva KO somebody else, right?
