When Silva comes to fight, he is a treat to watch. That said there have been more than one or two dip **** performances in the cage from him. I dont care if its a poor matchup, you are a professional and are getting paid millions each time you step in the cage. The fans deserve better.
I don't remember Silva doing anything bad in the Leites fight. I remember Leites flopping around like a fish at the end of a Faith No More video, but nothing that Silva did wrong. I'll trust your opinion on that one, since it would be tough on my eyes to go back and watch that one.
And I don't see the "more than one or two" fights that Silva was clowning around in, even if you give him Leites and Maia. Cote was a slow start but he wasn't clowning at all, and then Cote blew out his knee with 3 rounds to go. Can't blame Silva for that one.
