    Honestly, he looked a little confused, like one of those early shots made him rummy for a bit. It seems odd he would continue to take shots intentionally after the first couple if he was actually taking them deliberately. If he was, it was very foolish and risky.

    Lol...

    Didnt see that...

    I did see Bonner land a few good shots, but Anderson clearly evaded most of them...

    Id assume he did that because he didnt respect Bonner's power and Speed and rightfully so, IMO... Bonner keeps coming but doesnt really possess a lot of finishing ability standing... He would never try to clown someone like Hendo or Vitor like that. He would pick them apart, but not drop his hands and stand in front of them like that... He knows whats up.

    When you drop your hands it goads your opponent into punching you... Their vision is focused on the target... your head... your hands are normally there protecting yourself, so they can also see if a punch is coming from you... but when your hands are down like that, and they attack your head, it is very easy to catch them off guard... Thats what he did in the Forrest, Okami and Maia fight... Its actually a smart offensive strategy... that should only be used by someone who knows what they are doing.

    Doing that against the cage was very bold... borderline stupid, had be been fighting somebody with good speed or power, that could have easily been disastrous.

    Look how close this punch was... less than an inch


    Bonner has a granite chin, he can take a shot.... Fitting that Anderson would beat him with a body shot....

    If aliens came down, and their champion challenged earth's greatest warrior in a fight for control of this planet. I am sure our pick would be Anderson, and I am also sure I would be rooting for our alien overlords.

    There is no sense in doing that cocky shit. I think Anderson has less than zero class.

    He is all universe great though.

    I think what Anderson does is part of gamesmanship... It happens throughout all sports... While what he did in the Maia fight was certainly over the top... What he did against Bonner, Forrest, Okami, etc... was showing how game he is... and trying to be entertaining...

    I enjoy it... It certainly isnt calling your opponent a bitch over and over again...

    Is it cocky when a basketball player tries an ankle breaker on his defender or when a football player jukes a defender, then causally walks into the end-zone...

    I guess some people want fighters to be robotic... Many martial arts in themselves are about flustering your opponent and showing total domination... What Anderson does, actually leads to openings he capitalizes on...

    I think we all forgot who the real winner was last night... Steven Seagal, who invented that knee, helped Anderson perfect it.

    I wonder were all the Erick Silva fans are that posted pictures of Jon Fitch after his fight with GSP and stated Fitch was going to look like that. Oh what happened, Fitch laid a stomping on Erick Silva and won the FOTN. Maybe now, just maybe the guy will get the props he deserves from the internet fan boys.

    I'm still not on the fitch bandwagon. Glad he got the win though. He just doesn't have strong GNP and he's still satisfied holding a position for minutes at a time. Although this fight he was more aggressive, but mainly because he had to be. Silva was giving him hell. Towards the end he outlasted Silva and you can tell Silva was just tired of trying to fight him. Had this been a 5 round fight he would have probably stopped him due to exhaustion....Fitch is frustrating and has a good sub game, but he doesn't seem to have power in his hands or a sophisticated stand up game. His punches seem weak and half harted......I'd still like to see him fight Jake Shields, Damian Mia, or maybe even Ben Askren.....not that I'd be overly entertained by it, but just because....

    Here's what I don't get.

    Someone like Dominick Cruz can use his speed and technique control the fight, effectively nullifying his opponents offense through movement and people will talk about how great and technical a fighter he his.

    Someone like Fitch uses his strength and wrestling to control the fight, effectively nullifying his opponents through position and he gets criticized for it.

    I'd much rather watch Fitch fight than Dodson or Cruz.
