Where was his sense of urgency?
Mixed martial arts (MMA) fans wondering why Anderson Silva was not aggressive enough during his unanimous decision loss to Michael Bisping recently had that question answered by coach Luiz Dorea, who told MMA Fighting “The Spider” slammed on the brakes in fear of suffering another leg injury.
Understandable, when you consider this nightmare.
“He felt a kick he landed in the first round, thought he cracked his leg and a screw moved. That limited his movements, made him stop attacking for a moment. I asked him to attack, but he said ‘professor, I’m feeling it, I have no confidence’. I said ‘use your heart, you’re Anderson Silva, go after him’. That slowed him down a bit.”
Wouldn’t be the first time Silva had a screw loose.
Bisping won a controversial judges’ nod at the UFC Fight Night 84 event last weekend in London, England (highlights here). The win was good enough to put “The Count” back into the top five of his division, and right into the cross hairs of this part-time middleweight.
