Nah this incident don't say nothing about mma, just this one dude, and he had zero discipline. I mean I used to practice martial arts, but to lazy
and got other problems now a days, so I just lift weights so I don't get bored, and to keep in shape...But the first thing I learned is when under
pressure, the first thing you got to do is "no mind" that just basically means, don't think about #, just relax and let your instinct and training
take over....Which has helped me in more then one situation....And that is what that dude should of done, freaking sit down and chill the # out, #
even try to meditate, before his fears take over, which they did and he ended up doing something really stupid.
But anyways enough about that guy, and just to say that I haven't watched much fights lately, but was reading this thread and saw that silva fought
sonnen some time ago. So I goggled the fight, and dam Silva looked like he forgot how to punch and kick in that fight, it definitely was one of his
off days, he just looked clumsy and was winging punches that had nothing behind them.
But you got to give the dude credit, he just kind of took it from sonnen and stayed calm, and won by triangle at the end. It's the name of the
game...in his past fights he looked unstoppable and on point with his punches and kicks, especially in that forest griffin fight he had, were some of
the stuff, especially that punch at the end that kod forest was like something out of the matrix, were neo dodges and stares at the bullets going in
slow motion. He just kind of stared at forest punch, with his hands at the belt, then pop, just landed one on the chin, like he was bored... But in
the sonnen fight he just looked clumsy, but won in the end.
