Anderson Silva has a style all his own. Honest, but controversial. During his bout at UFC 112, he attacked Demian Maia with provocations, in a fight that even became monotonous starting in the third round.
The belt remains the champion’s but, at the end of the affair, the shower of boos showed the level of discontent in the stands. Still in the octagon, Anderson reflected:
“Demian is a great fighter and fought really well. He used some moves I didn’t expect and caught me by surprise. It wasn’t me in there and I want to beg everyone forgiveness. I think I got excited,” he said.
“It’s time for me to reflect on humility. That’s what got me here and today, definitely, it wasn’t me that was here,” added Silva who, despite his apology, was met with a round of boos.
