To be honest, I can pretty much say that with this "recent" sports news about him going to participate in the Olympics under Taekwondo, its safe to assume Silva is pretty much desperate and quite possibly lost the respect of many UFC fans.
I mean, this guy was like UFC's Golden Boy for quite a while ever since he started competing, He was one of the competitors that brought attention to the event, not only that, but he was basically one of Brazil's most known athletes that had no links towards Football/Soccer.
So here I say, what the fuck happened to this guy? He basically acted like a fucking idiot towards the Chris Weidman match 2 years ago and because of his foolish attempts at being intimidating towards the Weidman figure by trying to taunt him, he basically lost a lot of respect from everyone.
Doesn't help when he was just accused of Doping months ago.
