Brunson, who has lost two straight following a five-bout winning streak, disagreed with both Silva’s and the cageside judges’ assessment of the fight.
“Everyone is telling me that I won. I feel terrible. It’s not Anderson’s fault or the UFC’s fault. I took this fight on short notice and, to have this happen, is just crazy to me,” Brunson said. “I take this seriously. This is my job. I put everything into this and I got robbed. It sucks.”
“I’m old. I’m very old,” he said. “One of the guys said, ‘You’re too old.’ But I have a lot of experience. I have perfect time. This is more important.” – Said the GOAT while cracking in jokes about his age (41).
While his skills might not be what they once were, Silva still has confidence in himself, despite the self-deprecating comments regarding his age.
“I’m just waiting for my next challenge inside the cage. But now, I need to rest a little bit. I’m old.” Finished the Spider.
