Any help with the chunks in bold would be greatly appreciated.
How Silva can become a bigger star than before
Silva might not ever be a big hero, but he gives the UFC something it desperately needs -- a top-notch villain.
When Silva fights, he doesn't just dominate his opponents. He taunts
them, embarrasses them and ultimately deprives them of their manhood. It
would be one thing if he was doing that to other villains, but when
he's doing it to Rich Franklin and Forrest Griffin, it puts Silva into
some serious villain territory.
Add his new disregard for the
fans and UFC management, and we've got ourselves a bona fide villain,
which makes him a refreshing change from the contrived heels that the
UFC spins out every year on The Ultimate Fighter.
More than that, being a heel makes Silva an ideal foil for the hero types of the UFC.
All of this lines up perfectly if Silva is matched up against a guy
like the mild-mannered St-Pierre, the fresh-faced Jon Jones, or perhaps
aging legend Randy Couture.
We all look up to our heroes, but the UFC needs villains just as badly,
and Anderson Silva may end up being the best UFC villain ever.
