If Silva was so awesome he should have just finished him on the ground. How can you be the best p4p and be afraid to even goto the ground for 15 seconds.
Imagine early UFC rules, no standups and 1 round. He would be screwed then. He's champ, so unless he gets finished or finishes his opponent in the first he gets to start standing minimum 5 times, with ref standups its actually more like 10...
There has to be more than just randomness as to why he sucked in Japan and then goes into 5 minute rounds and becomes the greatest p4p fighter ever. He is a LHW now anyway, if he is the greatest go beatup that division. He can't, he doesn't want to risk his "legacy" (Bill Clinton accent on the word Legacy)
