    Yes, I agree. But Anderson tends to say one thing one day and the opposite the next so I will take this with a grain of salt for now.

    Anderson has great footwork, as well. Part of his ability to shift from slipping punches to counterstriking is that he's keeping his center of gravity balanced above his feet and being positioned to shift. The fact that he makes it look so easy and fluid is one of the reasons it gets overlooked so much.

    I trust he'll be able to judge how strong he'd be in a comeback, and hope he doesn't delude himself into doing something foolish.

His next fight will tell a lot if they put him in against a killer. But it will probably be Bisping....in which case I'll enjoy another Anderson Silva Highlight victory
    You do realise that the reflexes are the first to go with age right?

    i could see them both coming back for a super fight against each other to make one last huge pay day and to see who is arguably the GOAT. After that fight they both retire.

    PS. anyone see how big GSP is looking right now...no homo

    I guess his recovery isn't going quite as well as he was letting on... No surprise there

    He has also not taken much damage compared to most MMA fighters. I wonder how many times he has been hit, seems like GSP has already been hit 20 Xs more in his career.
