“Anderson Silva has broke every record in UFC history. He’s the pound-for-pound best of all time. Why would you throw a fight?!” White exploded in a recent ESPN interview. “It’s just ridiculous… Who is going to throw a fight by getting viciously knocked out?! Do you know how stupid you have to be to even think that? You are an absolute moron!”
Silva is just as emotional when it comes to claims that he might have thrown the fight, but it hits him on an entirely different level.
The former UFC middleweight champion did an interview on Brazilian TV conducted in Portuguese. While we don’t have the full translation, it’s easy to see that Silva took the claims that he might throw a fight very personally, and reportedly took offense not only for himself, but also for his country.
