“The day I knocked someone out and ended up losing by points. In the Queen’s land it is no different from Brazil, fighting at home has its advantages! God save the Queen,” Anderson wrote.
Silva thinks Bisping got the decision because the fight was in England but Bisping disagrees and fired right back at Silva.

“You’re still whining on Instagram about the decision,” he wrote. “Saying I ran the whole time and you knocked me out lol. First off, I backed you up the entire fight and dropped you twice, also I clearly out struck you the entire fight. You landed a cheap shot in the third which dropped me at the end of the round, not KO’d me lol. Man, your so used to everyone bowing down to you, your head is messed up. You lost! Deal with it. A true martial artist should have honor and respect in defeat as well as victory. Also they don’t take steroids, you sir are a fake.”
All this stems from round 3 in their fight when Bisping loses his mouth guard, looks to the ref to pause the fight so he could retrieve it and Silva uses that moment to land a perfect jumping knee to his face drop Bisping right at the bell.
Anderson feels he should have gotten the knockout, the referee (Herb Dean) did not. In fact, Silva was celebrating his victory and didn’t know the round had ended – and not the fight. The bout continued two more rounds ending in a unanimous (48-47) decision victory for Bisping.
Should Bisping give Silva a rematch?
