If Anderson Silva has problems, then I want to be Anderson Silva!

If Dana White doesn't want him in the UFC, then more power to ya bud!

If Anderson Silva makes Joe Silva look bad, then maybe there is one too many Silva's!

Anderson Silva does not have a glass jaw; he has a glass ankle.

If Freddie Roach could get his hands on Anderson Silva full time, he would!

If nobody can touch Silva why won't Dana White let him move up?

If your boss thinks your a "jackass" would you still work for him?

If Anderson Silva could get out of his contract right now to pursue boxing, would he?

Dana White, you know there is a problem somewhere but you don't know how to fix it.

If Anderson Silva wants to fight the best then why is Dan Henderson in Strikeforce?

Why is Dan Henderson and Forrest Griffin the two biggest fights of his career?

If Anderson Silva thought that he could fight better fighters in boxing would he leave?

Is Dana White a good person for putting the weight of the company on Anderson Silva  in a foreign country to "sell" his product?

Does Anderson Silva still want to fight in a cage?

Does Anderson Silva care if he is the pound for pound king of MMA?

If Scott Coker could get Anderson Silva would he take him?

If Scott Coker could get him, could he afford him?

If your boss vilifies you in public, and treats you like amateurish child, would you still work for him?

I doubt it.

IF can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son! - KIPLING


I thank you kindly, sympathizing friends-
Your favors, your kind patronage implore;
On these alone my earthly weal depends-
Farewell—and peace be with you evermore.
