Anderson never gave up, kept trying and ultimately found a way to win... he deserves credit for that. BUT... it's not like getting his ass kicked for 22 straight minutes was part of his master plan. Chael, love him or hate him, won every single round and dominated Anderson in a way we haven't seen in years
. He deserves credit as well.
What baffles me are the people who criticize GSP for "not trying to finish fights" and DON'T give credit to Chael for his performance. He did exactly what they cry out for... he tried to finish the fight. He could have stalled or danced the last 2 rounds and won but he didn't.
If I can look past my hatred for the Diaz brothers and recognize what they do INSIDE the Octagon I just don't understand why some of you Chael haters can't do the same.
I give credit for Chael bringing the house, problem is he forgot to close the door for the 12th time and Silva walked right on through. Thats pretty much where I am making fun of him at. His inability to defend against a hold he has lost to a half a dozen times.
Chaels activity on the ground was nothing more then a cheap ploy to keep it on the ground, 75% of the punches he threw had very little on them, he was not going for the finish but trying to pad the numbers. Besides who has he finished in the UFC, nobody, well how about in WEC, once again nobody.
In the end why should he get a rematch with Silva, its not like it was controversy surrounding the match, fans really aren't demanding it, an lets face Sonnen hasn't beaten anybody to get it.
