Glad I didn't pay for this one. Should probably warn people who haven't watched yet and are planning on ordering it later.


I bet a lot of ppl that were planning on ordering it later will probably hear the news of what a crapfest event this was.
The fact that its not live and the that the main event was horrible will definitely reflect in the amount of ppv sales.

Dana is going to be pissed.

Does anybody know where to watch the post fight conference


Pretty sure UFC will post them tonight after the PPV is over, but if anyone can find them before I'd love to see them. I'm just itching to hear White's reaction.

Yah man and people were upset at GSP's performance. It's obvious the only way Silva will finish a fight is if somebody close their eyes and runs at him arms swinging

Best P4P my @$$

Since Anderson Silva said he was 'rusty' through his translator, Dana White should make him fight again in Vancouver. Rich Franklin anyone?

If I had gone to the pub to watch the PPV like I had originally planned I would have been right pissed. I feel bad for all the poeple that are looking forward to seeing this tonight, they are in for a huge, HUGE letdown.

Well he keeps promising it fight after fight, but it never seems to happen.

Yahoo! Sports Kevin Iole reported that White took Silva's belt, threw it down after the fourth round and walked to the back. When White came into the postfight press conference, he exploded without much prodding.

"Believe me, I'll answer the questions of what a disgrace the main event was," said White. "To end it the way that we did was an embarrasment for me, the UFC, the Fertittas and the UAE."

White was even more incensed than he was after Silva's wacky performances at UFC 90 and UFC 97, saying this one took the cake.

"If you're that talented, be Mike Tyson. go in there and finish," said White. "I'm so blown away and disgusted and saddened."

White also said Silva may be the first UFC champ to fight on the non-televised prelims in the future. While waiting for Silva to show up, he also said he hoped he didn't show up.

"I dont know how yet, but I will make this up to the fans," said White.

I can't say I'm surprised that he's furious.

I can't wait to see the press conference later. You just know that White will make him pay for ahat he pulled tonight. After all it isn't the first time Silva has done something similar. If White wants to make it up to the fans maybe he could have Silva's hands tied behind his back and let someone knock him out. Right now that's what I would like to see. I'm so sick of watching Silva fight. Something has to give, maybe strip him of the belt and make him fight for it.

It will be shown tonight on PPV, not really worth watching in my opinion. I want the 2 hours or so of my life back after watching it. Definitively a waste of money to buy on PPV.

Damn I really want to see the post fight conference. It sounds like he went off. Threw silva's belt on the ground and left after the 4th round and said he'll probably make silva fight on undercards. LOL

There might be more to this story than meets the eye. I have a feeling Silva is trying to get out of his contract. No reason other than a hunch on my part.

"Unfortunately, not every fight turned out the way everyone would like," Silva uttering almost identical words to his odd, action-less fights at UFC 90 and UFC 97. "Demian disrespected me, not as a person, but as a fighter."

"I'm not too sure what [jiu-jitsu] school Demian came from," said Silva. "I sent a message because he disrespected morally by the things that he said. "I'm a black belt, and would never say the things that he said."

"I don't feel like I owe anyone an apology right now," said Silva. "Sometime's fights turn out good, sometimes they turn out bad."

"The way I feel, my mission was completed, I came in and dominated the fight, I did what I had to do, That's how I feel."


http://sports.yahoo....?urn=mma,233390

UFC president Dana White, who traditionally hands champions their belts at the end of fights, left the bout during the fourth round. White was still seething during the post-fight press conference.

“It was a disgrace,” he said. “To end this night the way we did was embarrassing - I apologise to every one who came to the fight. I will, I don't know how yet, but I will make this up to the fans.

Asked by The National whether putting Silva into a fight with welterweight champion Georges St Pierre – who the crowd chanted for throughout the main event – was now a priority, White was ambiguous.

“Who wants to see Anderson fight after that fight? He could be the first champion in history to be fighting on the preliminary card.”

A GSP vs Silva fight makes zero sense

GSP walks around at 5'11 185bs

Silva walks around at 6'2 225lbs

He is physically a much bigger man and based on GSP's fighting style, he has zero chance of winning.

I feel bad for Anderson Silva, the guy has absolutely no competition in the UFC. I really hope he doesn't fight GSP, because he's going to dominate him just like everyone else.

Honestly GSP will destroy Anderson Silva, no doubt

Yeah...no chance. GSP can't touch Silva's stand-up and there's no way he can take him down. Silva would embarrass GSP, and for that fact alone, I don't think Dana White will let that fight happen.

He's already almost ended Franklin's career twice, while barely working up a sweat. There's no way Franklin fights Silva for a third time.

Silva is a piece of $hit. If your gonna showboat back it up. The ref even warned him bout running away, Belfort is gonna knock this choad out when Silva starts dancing around like he's in a circus
