Former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva was not happy when it was announced that all three judges had scored the ‘UFC Fight Night London’ main event in favor of his opponent Michael Bisping.

“The Spider” felt the he was robbed by the judges and had this to say about his first-ever decision loss inside of the octagon:

“Here’s the deal, you can’t win one way, they try to take it away the other way. That’s it,” Silva said in Portuguese after the loss (translated by Guilherme Cruz). “You saw how that went, right? So, there’s nothing left to say. I fought for you, and that’s it. Thank you for the support. My family, I’m coming back home, I’m fine. Mission accomplished, mission given, but sometimes it’s like in Brazil, total corruption.”

How did you score yesterday’s Bisping vs. Silva bout and who you like to see the 40-year-old veteran square off with in his next octagon appearance? Sound off PENN Nation!
