He fought like he always does, he took the openings his opponent gave him and did not make any major mistakes.

I'm not talking about him "bashing" Leites. Telling the truth is hardly bashing someone. It was great that Chuck spoke up, but I just think it would have benefited Anderson more (PR wise) if "he" had said basically what Chuck did.

I see where you and JB are coming from with Anderson's gameplan, etc... and, like I've said I was more frustrated with Leites than Anderson. But, I see some of Dave's points also. As a fan (yes who paid money to see this fight and Chuck's mainly) I was disappointed in this fight. For me, it's not like what JB is saying that I have to have violence/blood...I just want to see a "good" fight with both opponents giving it there all especially for a championship fight with the title on the line. I think that is basically what Dave is saying as well (just with a lot more words, of course ).

I just thought we were going to see Anderson "challenged", but I guess their fighting styles were just too polar opposite for that ever to happen.

It was cool to see Chuck stand up for Silva. I see it both ways, but you have to take it to the champ to beat the champ. Anytime Silva engaged, Leites fell down to the ground like a little bitch.

On the flipside, I saw plenty of opportunites for Silva to throw, but he just stood there, almost dancing at times.

However you look at it, I blame the fight on Leites' refusal to engage. He looked beyond pathetic in that fight.

I dont care HOW he wins. I just got pissed off coz he stood there doing very little, he didnt even use combinations on the feet against someone who couldnt strike with him well.
jeez, for a second there is sounded like you were talking about jens pulver's last two fights.

let's not get pissed off because of a fight guys. it's just entertainment and there are more important things in life that we should be focusing our energy on.
