    Default Jon Jones urges 'idol' Anderson Silva to retire after two 'flukish losses'

    Jon Jones urges 'idol' Anderson Silva to retire after two 'flukish losses'

    “It was just sad. I know how long Anderson Silva’s been working to be who he is. I’ve won several world titles, this guy’s won like 12, 13. That’s a lot of work. To see such a magnificent career and legacy get tarnished by two losses, two kind of flukish losses – I wouldn’t call the first one a fluke – it sucks. It leaves a weird taste in your mouth, like it’s not supposed to end that way. What I’m hoping is that people remember Anderson for all the magnificent things he’s done, and all the lives he’s touched, and all the people he’s inspired, and I’m hoping that Anderson just stays away from the sport and continues to be an inspiration outside of the Octagon.... Not fight again. Anderson can do seminars, he can do motivational speaking, he can help all the kids in Brazil, I mean he’s such an idol. His greatness has just begun, but I think in the Octagon, I think it’s been already fun.”

    So were both fights a 'flukish' win or was the first a KO? Which is it Jonesy?

    I'd call the result of the second fight more of a fluke than the first one.

    No he didn't. The first fight Chris capitalized on a moment where Anderson was being overly confident. Up until that point I fully expected Anderson to win the fight. I do agree that Chris was clearly winning the second fight.

    Took him down, gnp, almost submitted gim and out struck him then KTfO in the first fight.
    Second knocked him down from the clinch, more gnp outstruck him AGAIn and broke his leg exposing his poor technique on leg kicks.

    DOMINATION.

    I agree he dominated in the second so there's no need for a recap of that fight.

    Are you forgetting how Anderson popped up from Chris's submission attempt? He certainly didn't keep him down like he did in the second fight. I wouldn't say he outstruck Anderson. Anderson at that point was playing with him and Chris took advantage. It's that cut and dry for the first fight.
