You just admitted that Anderson has a weakness that gets exploited by the fighters he is ducking or tries to duck and yet you say hes #1 p4p...
Everyone has a weakness. You won't find a fighter walking the planet that doesn't but if you find one let me know so I can bow down and kiss his ass. Surely that individual must shit apples pies
Silva is the best mma fighter on the planet and that is not just something I am saying. His accolades and impressive victories speak for him.

I'm in this category.
I just want him to continue dominating until he retires. However if he does lose I want it to be against another legend. Very similiar to how you found peace in Fedor losing to someone like Werdum as opposed to Rogers.
Silva has always defended his title when the UFC told him to. He trains hard, he makes weight, he doesn't provoke any shit talking and he lets his skills do the talking for him. Showing up on time for his fight and doing his job in the ring is enough for me. Silva has the opportunity to be involved in some very entertaining fights but the hardcore fans only want to see him in the ring with wrestlers meanwhile every other fighter gets written off immediately.
This concerns me.
