This fight would have been better with Pride rules for a grounded opponent, that is saying Silva would have stomped or soccer kicked a fellow Brazilian.

One things for sure, the term 'noble art' was never gonna be applied to two guys rolling around with their crotches pressed against each other looking to end a fight by twisting the other guys arm around.

I know Leites fought like a guys just trying to go the distance, but in the past he has actually showed plenty of heart, liek against Kampmann and Nate Marquardt.

I think it's very smart, skillful and highly effective... If you think only punching or wrestling is manly then we just disagree. I call it ignorant since i guess you're just not getting it but maybe it's just short-sighted or a matter of taste... whatever. I think if you have the right to call a BJJ guy girly then calling you ignorant is not much bigger of a cheap-shot...
@ Gatti - exactly - it HAS to do with how good Silva is. Maybe it's his intimidating aura or seeming invincebility - but it really looks TOO easy/effortless (literally) how he shut Leites down. You could see that if Leites would have engaged more, Silva would have iced him. So for the fans all there is to it is complaining about his unwillingness to take a risk. I can't really blame Leites since he had no chance in hell other than ending on the receiving end of a highlight reel KO.

I can see where you're coming from but i assure you after some BJJ guy rips your elbow in two or dislocates a knee, ankle most guys would feel that settles a FUCKLOAD... at least for that day and some months of rehab...
KOing someone with a hayemaker to the jaw is also just getting out of the fight... ;)
