I said Anderson lost. The dude absolutely clowned him in the first an most of the second. I don't think he threw the fight but I do think wasn't in there to win. I can't really explain what I saw. But I will say Weidman looked very beatable even if he did win.

As much as I want to say Anderson lost you just can't do it. Weidman beat the man they put infront of him. All credit to Chris. But I cant help but keep thinking about GSP Serra.

Weidman beat a guy that wasn't fighting back for the most part.

That is what he was contracted to do though. Correct?

I honestly could believe Anderson took a dive. All the promos with these fighters who have probably never trained with Weidman, saying "Oh this dude is a beast, he has what it takes". Silva gave Weidman the belt at the pre-fight press conference. Anderson also had a weird interview on ESPN. Then, during the bout he was begging Weidman to fight, but he was the one not fighting, imo. His post fight interview was weird.

To top it off, Springsteen's Born in the USA is cued up, and they have the American flag, for all American Chris Weidman on Independence Day weekend? Come on. I'm seriously suspicious.

No point in wasting your time George. Silva fans are never going to give up on Anderson beat himself.

The man got cleaned knocked out and if im not mistaken Weidman's left hook was the reason.

Chris won. Silva's stupid clowning didn't get to him, he stay focused and KOd him. That's what I saw. Silva nuthuggers can make all the excuses they want.

Last time he did this exact thing was against Maia. That was not a recent fight either, that was in 2010.

I said the same thing to a buddy after the fight. I know the UFC was probably preparing for a victory either way, but I got a chuckle when Born in the USA started blaring over the speakers.

Chris did what he had to do, stayed composed, and landing the fight ending shot. It was Silva's own damn fault for showboating. Now, I believe Silva was starting to pick Chris apart with those leg kicks. If he kept his hands up, I think he would have worn Chris down, and probably finished him. Like others have said though, Anderson has showboated in many of his recent fights, so technically, Chris beat Silva, with Anderson doing what he does best.

If a rematch does happen, I will pick Chris next time, as we have no clue what Silva shows up to fight. If it's motivated Silva, I think he wins via ko, but more than likely, a disinterested Silva shows up, and Weidman beats him again.

Weidman won, one the first round easily and didn't leave much of an opening for counter shots. That's what impressed me was the face he was boxing with AS, but did so on his own terms, he never overreached or took a bad step.


Anderson got beat, he tried to play mind games but Weidman stayed composed and waited for the opening, it was beautiful combination that landed too. Right hope that barley not clean and then he pawed Anderson which baited Anderson into moving into a HELLHOOK. I think if he doesn't paw after the right, that sequence wouldn't have ended like that.
