Why would you actually think he's serious? His antics are purely to draw attention to himself, rile people up, and hype his fights. He wants to be the villain who everyone wants to see Silva trash. That's how he get's big fights and stays in title contention. In real life he's nothing at all like his UFC persona. I have friends who train with him all the time. He's helping one of my buddies train for a fight for free as the fight is for a charity. He's a great guy and really intelligent in real life. The money laundering thing was a big mistake, but we've all screwed up. The steriod use is due to a medical condition and was made known before hand but not i nthe proper manner to the proper authorities. He was on testerosterone replacement therapy for his fight with Brian Stann too, and he told people. It's not something he's trying to hide to get an unfair advantage he has to take the stuff to compete and be healthy in general and they're letting him for that reason. Get off Anderson Silva's nuts Hotrice he's a big boy, he doesn't need you to defend him and fight his battles for him. Silva can fight his own battles just fine clearly. Tek-yes wrestlign is a bigger advantage, Sonnen is just bad with geometry. laugh
