    And the end of the day, Renzo is only making this comment as an extension of GSP and Anderson's slight barbs to each other.

    That video alone is enough to discredit anything Renzo has to say about being humble. Talking about the pot calling the kettle black...

    That cross the humble line and the cocky line and the jerk line and the D-bag line and ends up somewhere in bastard county, population Bisping.

    It is quite clear to me that Silva has zero respect for his opponents in the ring.......his behavior during the fight clearly has shown that on numerous occasions. It's all mind games, because the instant the fight is over, he goes over to his opponent and does show respect.

    Is Capoeria a disrespectful art form?

    Is Aikido?
    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.

    Either you can't tell the difference between what was going on in the Maia fight and capoeira, or you've convinced yourself that Anderson wasn't deliberately being an asshole with all evidence pointing to the contrary.

    Either way, it's laughable every time you try to rewrite history and pretend that was capoeira.

    I have no issue with being cocky in the middle of a sport as long as you are humble before and after.

    Maia Fight:
    From my observation Silva's opponents typically talk a lot of shit before the fight meanwhile Silva remains absolutely silent. We have seen this happen time in and time out. Once the fight actually happens Silva does his talking in the ring. That is how Silva defends himself and when he does there is usually a public outcry.

    It's no secret that some of that was mockery with a blend of capoeria but lets not pretend that mockery was unprovoked. Have you ever seen Silva do what he did to Maia in any other fight? Did you ever stop to question what might have provoked that reaction from Silva leading up to the fight? Why didn't Silva mock Franklin, Vitor, Henderson or Okami??

    Some people like to react off of what they see without asking questions. That's not how I roll. If people think its laughable then the more power to them lol.

    Capoeira:
    Silva integrates Capoeira into his fighting style. Even Joe Rogan picked up on that during the Maia fight.

    Some people can't tell the difference between that and what it is perceived to be disrespectful dancing. In fact I bet some have no idea that he studies Capoeria and currently holds a yellow sash.



    Anyways the point I was driving home wasn't based off of one particular fight. I am actually referring to Silva's UFC career and the perception that when AS dances he is doing so to be disrespectful.

    My argument is if dancing is disrspectful then does that make Capoeria a martial art based on dancing a disrespectful art form? So we are back to the same question I asked Dan... which coincidently is the same question you avoided.

    PS.
    If you really want to go there I will find the fight and show you where in the time stamp that he was using Capoeria.
