Firstly HUGE congratulations to mark for his achievement at Pride. personally I thought he would either KO vanederlai or be beaten convingly, neither was the case. His showing was superb further highlighted by the fact that he took the match on such short notice against probably the #2 LHW fighter on the planet!
Having watched the match I will say that the decision in my opinion was VERY poor. I would suspect that the bulk of MMA media will reflect this statement. On any level fighters learn to take the good with the bad and the result will state HUNT defeated SILVA.
I would love in the future to see him V Mirko in pride, that would be a HUGE gate for Pride, however, I am not sure it will happen in a hurry. Vanderlai (rightfullys so) looked absoulutely gutted by the decision, which I believe is going to bring a new breath of life into him.
VERY interested to hear input from anyone else that has seen the fight.
