            I would love to see Anderson claim gold again, thoughts? Probably will never happen. But if it can happen for Cruz I’m routing for Silva. By the way as a side note Jones fights and wins but Silva always has more entertaining fights in my opinion.

                Hats off to you Silva, you're the real champ! In spite of lose, how humble ur, Awesome man. You're one of the rare fighters in UFC. I am proud to say, i am a hardcore fan of you.

                              Getting Ridiculous...Please Retire

                              Anderson is an all-time great MMA legend. Its time to hang it up..He has only won 1 fight in the last 6 years. Like Fedor, we appreciate all the highlights and glory years, but the worst is all that is left.

                                Anderson Silva is a real fighter. Him and Chael Sonnen do not run from fights to protect their records. They fight a wide variety of fighters, regardless of styles or weight classes. I will never forget how Anderson took a short-notice fight against Daniel Cormier, went the distance, and even hurt Cormier during the fight. He is a true fighter.

                                  Silva looked much sharper in this fight, just a shame he's lost the quickest in his feet, definitely where his younger opponent had the advantage, just doesn't have that explosive spring in his step anymore, did well considering. Maybe anderson can work on it, but I think that's age playing it's part

                                        This is actually pretty sad ... everybody who´s fought professionally knows Silva is fighting for ´£` only. Come on , once I got to my thirties I would notice how younger ´kids` would ´spare` me , here and there ,of whatever they had in store for me inside that ring ... you just feel it , you´re slower, your cardio is just quite simply not there no longer ... you´re an old man , you do not belong in that ring any longer since you´re slowing down younger potential . You can teach them the tricks you possess ,share experience, sure , younger fighters can then add the cardio ,velocity, flexibility , technic ( you´re missing ) to whatever sequences/technics you show them, whatever you had which they respect(ed) .
                                        As for confrontation ? Simple : you just can´t keep the pace ,you´ve been there, time to come down , beyond your control even .
                                        Plus , look at these fights , Diaz and Conor ... this is big money exclusively , make no mistake ... arguably fake , don´t think fans deserve that , yet, if they think they do, who am I to moan about that which I perceive as a farce ?
                                        Long post , end with the question : Ruining an extraordinary legacy for £ - wouldn´t you ?

                                                        Reading through these comments, I agree, Anderson definitely is a very special talent. As far as the GOAT, Anderson will always be light years beyond Jon Bones Jones - Real talk.

                                                          Diaz and McGregor are strictly for money. He still has that young mans voice. His opponent is younger and faster

Jackie Chan never needed to be able to speak very good english to be a huge star, all about body language. I think Anderson's body language, legitimacy, and physical skills could make him a fun guy to watch on screen.
