Hendo replies to a keyboard warrior
Keyboard warriors drive me crazy, they drive everyone crazy I believe. Apparently they get under Hendo’s skin. So much so, he responded to a post on TheUG regarding his current contract negotiations.
In it he makes a point about Anderson Silva I hadn’t previously heard, or considered for that matter. In my opinion, Hendo put up 2 of his worst career performances against 1 Anderson Silva and Rampage Jackson. Those 2 title fights were his to lose, and he did. He came into the Rampage fight looking like he wasn’t sure he wanted to fight his friend, and entered the second round of his Anderson Silva scrap looking like he was ready to go home. Uninspired is how I would describe those two fights. Not like the man we’ve seen over the last 6 fights. Not like the champion who took it to Wanderlei Silva when he was still at his height. Not the man who held 2 belts in Pride simultaneously, the only man to do so!
With that in mind, why would Anderson Silva be interested in fighting Hendo again? For the same matter, why would he be ducking him? It’s a fair question, why not take the easy payday if he feels he will beat Hendo with ease? Is he ducking Hendo? Has he been since Hendo was in the UFC the last time? It apears as if he may be. Hmm……..What do you think?

Skooter, the difference between you and me is that while you sit at your computer and make ignorant statements while hiding behind an anonymous screen name, I am willing to test myself against the toughest fighters in the world, in front of hundreds of thousands or even millions of fans, over and over again. Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose, but I always come to fight. I’ve been doing this for the past fourteen years, and I have at least a few more strong years left in me. What have you done in the past fourteen years other than act like a moron on this forum and hang on Anderson’s nuts? Tell me where you work so I can come watch, and whenever you have a bad day I’ll demand that you get fired with no opportunity to redeem yourself. Sound fair?I’ve gone 6-1 since the Anderson fight, with wins in three weight classes against world-class competition. Considering my recent success along with my career accomplishments, I think I’ve pretty much earned the right to call out anyone in the world–and I believe I’ve demonstrated over the course of my career that I have a better than average chance of beating whomever it is I choose to call out. Whether you like it or not, Anderson and his management have done their best to avoid a rematch. I think I’ve proven myelf worthy to face him again, and if he believes I’m such an easy fight, why not take the payday? I would not have left the UFC if it wasn’t obvious that Anderson was avoiding a second fight, and he’s doing it again.
