Anderson Silva Wants a Make-Up Fight “Immediately”


(It’s like he saw that Condom Depot ad and became enraged. I’ve never seen a man who hates birth control with such a ferocious passion.)

You bastards have done it now. You fans and media with your hate mail and hate articles, accusing Anderson Silva of conduct unbecoming a champion. Now he’s pissed. And Silva is not like your sister. He doesn’t turn to ice cream when he’s upset. He turns to awesomely destructive violence, and he would prefer to do it as soon as possible according to UFC president Dana White, who had this to say to the Las Vegas Review-Journal regarding the champ:

“He’s flipping out. He wants to fight again, like, on Nov. 15,” White said. “He’s (upset) about his performance and he wants to fight again immediately.”

Now that’s the attitude you want from your champ. Of course, it’s completely unreasonable to think the UFC could get him a worthy opponent in time for UFC 91, so don’t get too excited. But this might be the perfect time for creative matchmaking on the UFC’s part. Maybe they can’t get a top-level challenger, but could they get three mid-level guys? Middleweights, light heavyweights, anyone who needs a paycheck, really. How about if Silva faces Ed Herman, Houston Alexander, and an unemployed ninja all at once?

No, that’s still not fair. Okay, the ninja can use his throwing stars and Houston can use illegal knee strikes. Ed Herman, he has to show up drunk. Check that, he gets to show up drunk. This is one night he’s not going to want to remember.

No one said he was ignorant or assumed that he has no concept of what real closeness is, (many people have a different definition of what closness is), i said its ignorant to call out to what Silva belief is, is an ignorant statement. Everyone has their own opinion of what they want to do. If Silva does not want to fight Machida then thats his own right.

It might be hard for some to comprehend but in some cultures you don't fight each other that way.

@robbot Dont bother replying to them robot compadre just wants to get the last word. Anonymous what are you talking about? Recently on INSIDE MMA in an interview with Rashad Evens they asked about the possibility of having to fight Keith Jardine. Reluctantly Rashad said he would then have to find another camp since Keith was the one to bring him into Jacksons camp. Sometimes in situations you just have to fight when called on. KJ Noons showed us the alternative. Robbot I totally understand where your coming from and its totally a fighters mindset from all the interviews Ive done with fighters. To everyone else try and understand these are professionals and adult men and women that can seperate their feelings from their job. Fighting is a passion to many of them and competative drive lets them pound eachother out, while making a buck for their trouble, and pal around and go to eachothers homes for dinner. To anonymous, what is truly IGNORANT is to assume robot has no concept of what real closeness and friendship is like.

Throw either GSP or Chuck Liddell at him. Make it so, number one!
compadre- October 29, 2008 at 9:59 am
robot, the funny thing is that our argument started with anderson not wanting to fight his camp mates and you mentioned that this has happened many times in the past including the UFC...

your words:
'That said get some EDU it wouldnt be the first time or last that two people from the same camp have fought… yes even in the magical kingdom of the UFC.'

you seem to think I act like I know it all, but I don't make bold statements like that, and you still have not referenced any fight to back it up... On a side note, even if anderson and machida would agree to fight each other, do you think you'd get your money's worth? They wouldn't go 100% at each other, it wouldn't be fare to us as fans.

@ robot, i dont think Dana could make them fight, they could easily turn down the fight. Also they consider each other family, its a different mentality than what some people are use to; that is why people come up with IGNORANT statements like "As for friends not fighting, that is bullshit". I agree friends do fight, but when you develop a close bond you bring out the best in each other in training and be force to fight each other. If they wanted to fight to find out who is the best then they would do it in their own gym.

Also Robot if you wanted to call out Silva about his bluff, why dont you approach him and fight? I would like to see how a gold glover do against Silva.
robbot- October 29, 2008 at 2:13 am
@ compadre Maybe you had trouble catching the fact that I poked fun at your gay reference. Sounds to me like maybe your insecurity is saying something, maybe, just a little compadre? Anyway who are you to tell me not to compare? Wait you wouldnt happen to have been on TUF and then a UFB champ... holy shit this must be Forest Griffin... WOW I bow to your expertise. Get real man. All this time youve played yourself like you know it all and when challenged you resort to gay jokes and think they actually do something other than make you sound immature. You type up an itemized list and ignore the fact that Its already been pointed out that no matter how much you hold you stuffed Silva doll and pray your little heart out that he wont fight Machida if Dana says they fight then they fight or sit out the remainder of their days throwing all there money into litigation with ZUFFA. Bottom line yeah your right its likely it will never happen as I dont think Dana would push for it. However, I think in MY opinion it would be a good fight. Now should we continue to go back and forth? You wanted to start with the insults so Ill let you choose how to end it.

@ Compadre - damn man he made you his bitch.
laso kid- October 29, 2008 at 1:26 am
@ compadre OK I tried to look at your point of view but seriously? Robot has called you out and your just acting like a tool? Do you have anything valuable to say?
compadre- October 29, 2008 at 12:46 am
wow robot, aren't you a bit sensitive with the gay joke? something's fishy there... :? is this your way of coming out?

1) don't compare being in a house and having to fight ppl from there through 3 weeks of knowing them to someone you train with for years.

2) anderson himself made the BOLD statement that he would not face anyone from his camp (not me).

3) you still didn't answer me about two fighters in the UFC from the same camp going at it (which you said happened on more than one occasion).

4) I guess you have to keep telling us you're a fighter to make yourself feel good, even though you know nothing of me you think you can take me.... GO ON KEYBOARD WARRIOR!
cr_trinity- October 28, 2008 at 11:34 pm
Man too bad Silva can't have a match up with Matt Lindland, that would be great. And a match up with Frank Shamrock would be great as well, as long as Shamorck doesn't clown around like he did with Cung Le.

Or why don't they call up Frank Trigg and ask him to make good on his boast that he matches up well stylistically with the Spider?
robbot- October 28, 2008 at 10:54 pm
@ compadre Lol, compadres got jokes huh. Listen kid if backyard boxing and gay jokes are the best you got then stick to makin excuses for Silva, like he needs the help. Fans are certainly capable of having opinions, infact I never downtalked your opinion by calling you a backyard boxer. I also wasnt the one to make the bold statement that Silva and Lyota would NEVER fight however I am qualified as a fighter to give my perspective and opinion on the concept of training partners fighting. Now you decided to go for the insults in your response to my initial posting. Let me give you some advice as a fighter that works in and out of the ring... Have a game plan and know your oponent. Before you run off at the mouth consider what youre saying and whether its worth it. As for proof of training partners fighting youve had 7 full seasons of TUF to watch men, not even emotional at the same level as an Anderson Silva, work through growing close as a team and training partnerr just to face off late in the season trying to achieve thier dreams. This brings us to the biggest and most important point of all. As WTF touched on, Silva and Lyota are EMPLOYEES and will do whatever Dana, ZUFFA LLC, and thier team of lawyers tell them to. Just ask Randy about that one. As for gay references maybe dont be so quick to defend your man crush next time and you wont look so stupid and if you want me to be gay then ok Ill be one big ol strawberry poptart homo, but Ill be the strawberry poptart homo that could hand you your @ss. So would you like that bitch slap microwaved or toasted. thanks for givin me something to laugh at kid. PEACE
compadre- October 28, 2008 at 7:36 pm
@ WTF, sorry if I offended both you and your boyfriend, peace.
WTF- October 28, 2008 at 7:01 pm
@compadre

You talk an interesting game to the Robbot, but I know the Robbot, and you sir, are no Robbot. Before you accuse him of backyard boxing, you should ask him what his record was in Golden Gloves Boxing, and in regional MMA shows.

As for friends not fighting, that is bullshit. If Dana White had any balls, he would call Silva on the Machida fight. It is not up to them who they fight...they are under contract the last time I checked. What are they afraid of? What, is their training partner going to expose a weakness that others can expose in the future? Sorry, but that does not fly as any fighter could do that.

Howwww about we throw Silva in there with Kalib Starnes so they can both dance around the ring together...Maybe silva can throw our his hand and ask starnes to dance like he did with Cote..
"May i have this dance Patrick?"
compadre- October 28, 2008 at 12:12 pm
and I hope you don't mean fighters that USED to train together or were at some point part of the same camp. I mean fighters that are currently training in the same camp as anderson is with machida...
compadre- October 28, 2008 at 12:10 pm
really? aside from two japanese fighters (that I can't quite remember their names) fought in Pride while both were from the same camp during a GP, I can't quite think of another instance where this has happened. Care to share with us when this happened in the UFC?

PS: I don't have any experience to back up my statement, I'm just a fan. Are you saying in order to have a valid statement I have to be a fighter?
robbot- October 28, 2008 at 11:45 am
Backyard boxing? nice touch compadre. And your experience comes from... First off Every fighter starts somewhere kid and yes Silva is just a person like you and me and there is no magical mystique to the UFC caliber training camps. whether an up and comer in smaller shows or a UFC champ training out of militich you train the same program its the difference in experience and natural talent.That said get some EDU it wouldnt be the first time or last that two people from the same camp have fought... yes even in the magical kingdom of the UFC.
mcd- October 28, 2008 at 11:31 am
these comments are unilaterally junk, but I just wanted to say I loved the editorial. Your best short piece in a long time.
compadre- October 28, 2008 at 8:09 am
@ robot

Playing around in your backyard with boxing gloves with a bunch of friends is not the same thing as fighting a TRAINING partner for real in the UFC. It’s not just friendship that is the problem, they train together as well. On a side note, there are a bunch of notable opponents for the spider that is not part of his camp, so why not call someone that is free to fight and from a different camp?
Seth- October 28, 2008 at 7:44 am
Anderson Silva could not beat a real ninja. He'd get his fuckin balls broke.
