You may be aware of the tapeless glove conspiracy at UFC 112 and perhaps even the lamentation given by Dana White after Ando’s theatrical performance. If you’ve heard of those two items, that’s great. You’ve officially passed today’s UFC quiz, now claim your reward. However, there’s a good chance that you’ve never heard of the Playboy Conspiracy and it all happened in Abu Dhabi after the second round in Silva vs. Maia. It was reported that during the second round, words were exchanged between the two fighters and just before the round ended, Anderson told Demian ‘Bate na minha cara playboy’ which translates to ‘Come on, hit me in the face playboy’ (which is apparently a large insult in Brazilian culture, go figure). Within a few days, it was reported that Anderson Silva didn’t make those comments, it was actually his corner who said ‘Bate na cara desse playboy’ which translates to ‘Come on, hit this playboy’s face‘. His corner also allegedly told Maia ‘You talked too much, now get spanked‘.
These Brazilians and their insults.
In an interview with Tatame, Demian Maia makes it clear that he still harbors beef from Silva’s UFC 112 antics and he’s actually rooting for Chael Sonnen.
“If I had to choose, I’d cheer for Sonnen, making an exception because I always want the Brazilians to win, but this time I have to be at Sonnen’s side, because I don’t admire the other one.”
Regardless of who the real ‘playboy’ is, I used to find those things under my dad’s bed all the time was I was a kid. I would check them out, then strategically place them in the same position I found them. Don’t be embarrassed, we all did it. [Source]
