So you didn't "actually clicked through the link." You know who tells little lies like yours? Fucking kids to their father! Am I your daddy? I must be... It's liberal scum like you that Stokes the flames of racism. You yell fire where there is none. Thank you. You and your actions are proof of the liberal condition...

Silva fought at 169 lbs in Pride. Why does a small MW have to have trouble making 170 but can easily make 205 in everyone's eyes? I get he's the GOAT but so silly some of these posters.
