Awww Snap! Renzo Gracie Says Anderson Silva Not a Humble Guy

Renzo Gracie fought on the UFC 112 card where Anderson Silva infuriated most of the known MMA world with his taunting of Demian Maia during their main event bout. Gracie is also connected with #1 middleweight contender Chris Weidman, who challenges Silva in one week at UFC 162.

In case you were wondering if Gracie and Silva’s shared mother country would keep the Jiu Jitsu legend from talking smack about Silva – it won’t. Speaking to The Fight Network, Gracie said, “Anderson is a guy that rubs many people the wrong way. He’s not a humble guy.”

Alright, so it’s not exactly mother f_cking Silva, but Renzo does seem to mean it as a serious criticism.

“Even though he may speak humbly when he talks, when he’s in the ring he doesn’t act humble. He puts down his opponents. He acts in a way that again, we always know what is right and wrong, and by looking at that, we know it’s wrong. It’s like you can beat your opponent, but do it with respect,” Gracie continued.

Saying Silva isn’t humble is a bit like saying that Michael Jordan is arrogant. No kidding, and who really cares?

Throwbacks like Renzo, we suppose. Renzo might hold on to a choke way after a ref has stepped in, or stomp on the head of an opponent of one of his fighters after the bell, sure.

He’s ruthlessly aggressive in fights but we can’t ever remember him taunting opponents during the fight. He’s all business, and it’s a grimy business.

Check out the video above for Renzo’s take on the bout as well as that of Weidman’s striking coach, Ray Longo.

    all those desperate attempts to try and make it seem like Weidman has a chance against Silva. I train with a dude from NY that trained with Weidman, he says Weidman is a cocky douche bag, he picks on guys smaller than him at the gym, he always thinks of himself above everyone else, etc... Usually I would go with the guy who is up against Anderson just to get someone new as MW champ, but this time I hope he KTFO Weidman.

    Haha, I agree. Everybody has a great chance against Silva, until they step in the cage with him.

    I don't mind it at all that Anderson destroys the egos of his opponents before he eats them alive. I only care when he doesn't actually fight them (like Maia). Otherwise, it's a thing of beauty how he dismantles the toughest men in the world and shows them the fear of god before he ends the contest. It's a marvel to watch, like a magnificent nature special. Pounce, spider, pounce!

    I'd say fighters like Jon Jones and Adrian broner are not humble. Silva is just that good can't say he is not humble just because of that

    Contrary to the BS Renzo is spewing I think Silva is obligated to perform the way he does. Not only does he take the aspect of his job that involves showmanship very seriously he also physically demonstrates what a great martial artist is truly capable of, in real time without tricks or illusions. He is paid well to do what he does and he delivers with sublime performances. To win is to win, but to win in spectacular fashion is to be a legend.

    I've never seen those clips of Renzo from the links above but that is some straight garbage. Not only did he hold the choke too long, he stomped on the back of Strijker's neck after the ref finally peeled him off and then even went back and grabbed his arm and flipped him over while he was trying to recover. The other clip is just indescribably bad. Makes Mike Kyle look like a pacifist.

    I'll be glad when next weekend is over and silva had finally quieted all the bullshit talk about Weidman. How many times does he have to prove that he is a fucking droid from another galaxy before people just start saying what we all already know. That Chris, although a good fighter by human standards is as dead as fucking fried chicken against silva. Period.

    He attacked marquardt because nate punched his fighter after the fight was over. Marquardt did that because his dickhead fighter didnt let go of the choke after the fight was over. Id still side with nate on that one, but its debatable. The neck stomping was inexcusable. Regardless, didn't this guy get standing ko'd by matt hughes? Reason of enough to hang his head in shame for the rest of his life if you ask me...
