Seems like everybody has been chiming in on what exactly went wrong for Anderson Silva at UFC 162. Ed Soares spoke with 'The MMA Hour' yesterday and Vitor Belfort aired his gripes on Twitter. Today UFC champion Jon Jones put in his two cents during the UFC 165 press conference:
"I think Anderson Silva is a magnificent fighter. I think that he has an extraordinary gift. I think he's gotten to the point where he really believes in his gift and he's comfortable with his gift. He abused his gift, disrespected his gift, by disrespecting his opponent.
Martial arts is a sport that is traditionally based around honor and integrity. You treat people with respect. He somehow lost sight of that and paid the ultimate price for it. I'm not over the Anderson Silva hype train. He was fighting at a masterful level, he just got disrespectful and the War Gods made him pay for it. He's still great in my book."
