By the way, Rockhold has never beat the kind of competition that Weidman has in his past 3 fights.
Rockhold only had the Strikeforce belt because Shields went to the UFC.
"""Rivethead said "...in almost 5 years...". Minimally that means that he wanted to confuse me on rather or not he was including Dan Henderson.
Does that help you understand that I am going beyond what you said, and actually implying why you said it?"""
My god man, this isn't rocket science. I agree this discussion should have ended a long time ago. Anderson Silva said X. Rivethead says that Silva said X because (the word why is implied when you use the word because) Weidman caught his attention with only 5 fights in the UFC. What I am saying to you is that, what Rivethead said is not a verifiable fact, therefor it is not a "what" statement. Maybe Someone came up to Anderson and said you want to fight Weidman next? To which Silva replied "who the fuck is that?". And that is why he said I don't want to fight Weidman.
I promise though, I don't care if you cant understand this, I will not write another post on what/why discussions.
What am I no longer going to do?
Write about Whats and Whys.
Why am I no longer going to do that?
Because I believe you simply won't get it.
