Put Dana White’s carping and whining aside. Write off the opinion of any fan who says Silva is too careful and won’t put up a fight.

They’re all just plain wrong.

Silva has sublime skills, awesome striking power, his defense is next to none and he knows how to win. You can’t ask more of a champion than that. If his opponents are committed to fighting careful, counter-striking fights and keep their distance, that is not a failure in Silva’s game and it’s a smart strategy. It makes for ugly fights, but Silva is too experience and too smart to make a rookie mistake.

Silva needs only to do what it is he does best – win. You stay at the top by winning, not looking good on the highlight reels. If for one moment you believe Silva would be on the UFC roster after a three-fight losing streak, you my friend are way, way out there.
