Marlon Brando, not Martin Sheen. The one with the spider on his head.

The greatest fighter in the world got shit on for years for all kinds of reasons. Either he fought too safe or he fought too cocky. He was never the fluent English-speaking face that the UFC fan base wanted. Then he got clowned by Chael in a one-sided media hype-war, fought him injured and had to listen for months about how he got embarrassed for 98% of the fight, all the while knowing that he was an absolutely superior MMA wizard.

Imagine what that's like, knowing you are the greatest MMA fighter of all time and having your Space Shuttle Challenger ego fueled by the incendiary insults of a fan base that laughs along to jokes about your home country and is too unsophisticated to recognize your greatness. He must just be the most resentful human being in MMA.

The second Chael fight showed what happens when all the confused inner voices turn off, he's not worried about sticking a thumb in Dana White's eye, and he is guided by pure revenge. No dangerous toying, just efficient and unavoidable brutality.

Now he's returned to the bored routine of feeling laughably superior to all his competition and he's finally made the break, took a boat deep into the jungle, predicted in an interview right before the fight that his greatest victory would be a loss to Wiedman. He came out in war paint at midnight and Wiedman was the Martin Sheen to his Marlon Brando. Maybe losing was the only act of absolute autonomy available to him anymore, an invincible monster made pet to the American UFC broke the leash and ran dancing into a knife like a man who had to die to be free.

Colonel Kurtz: "I watched a snail crawl along the edge of a straight razor. That's my dream; that's my nightmare. Crawling, slithering, along the edge of a straight razor... and surviving."

Kurtz lost his mind in the inhumanity he saw in the Vietnam war, and the corruption and lies of the U.S. gov't. Silva thought he was untouchable and got KTFO.

I mostly just needed some dramatic imagery and I had the final battle in mind, when Kurtz committed suicide by Sheen. The analogy is limited, it was a really long movie bro.

Sonny, it doesn't matter how dominant you have been in the past if they can lure you onto the causeway.

Listen guys, I've viewed the movie a half dozen times and I've sobbed (inside) at the horror of piles of children's limbs. I started typing this thread from zero 5 minutes before I hit post, spitting out mad non-rhyme like Rabbit on 8 Mile. That is how these things happen. They are not based on careful film analysis. Are we cool now, Team UG Audio-Visual?

Here, Wiedman plays the role of Marlon Brando, and Anderson plays the role of Stella during the weighins
