Why Didn't he swarm all over Chuck like he did to all other fighters? Even Crocop!

He was tentative and scared, he had no passion.
It doesn't have anything to do with roids, he was finished, and he has been for quite some time.

The start of the 2nd round, Wandy landed nice shots on Chuck. 2nd round went to Silva though Silva got hurt on the 2nd round. 3rd clearly went to Chuck. 1st and 3rd belonged to Chuck.

Now that Chuck is back on track, do you guys think a rematch with Jardine is next?
Watch the replays, one was a slip the other was a knock down.

I agree, once he let chuck get back up there was no way Silva was going to win. It's like he thought it was a boxing match, I mean he could of at least tried to fight inside so Chuck couldn't fully extend his punches. For a short guy like that to fight on the outside make no sense!

Cro Cop, Big Nog, Herring, Silva, Gomi (when he fought in the US against Diaz), you name them... when they came under drug testing, they lost, and/or looked awful. Then afterwards, you always hear the same thing... "that didn't look like that guy we are used to seeing".
good points and I also simply think WS is just battle weary.
That and those training techniques he employs are strange and questionable.
