Sure, Andy gave Weidman the opportunity. But Weidman not only took advantage of the opportunity. He stayed patient & waited for the right one. Most of the times Andy showboated, Weidman just popped a single left jab & stayed away, knowing Silva was trying to bait him. I think that kind of lulled Anderson to sleep & allowed for Chris to land the shot he landed bc Anderson wasn't expecting combos, he was expecting the single jab.

i like your tried to bait him in comment


ive been saying for YEARS on here that Anderson is a counter puncher. And he showboats to get the other guy to punch first. thats why i dont buy the whole he wasnt himself talk.


Anderson wasnt off his normal game. That IS his game plan. just didnt work this time. now he knows

Well i know when he fought Bonnar he was showboating on the fence. i wonder if bonnar would have knocked him out then would yall be saying the same thing



I sure would because it would be the same thing.

Anderson being dumb and acting goofy pisses me off. He's the most skilled fighter in the world and when he wants to fight he can beat anyone.

And you're wrong that he does this in every fight. He's done this before, you're right about that. But he didn't act like this in the vast majority of his fights.

He does showboat, but he rarely takes unnecessary shots to the head, in fact, he is known for avoiding damage, but in this fight, particularly the first round, he openly absorbed punches to the face that he welcomed. It was not like Silva to do that.

When two people compete in something where there is a winner and a loser, one of the wins and one of them loses.


The idea he took a dive is ridiculous. If Anderson was gong to take a dive, he would have tapped to the kneebar, not gotten embarrassed bby getting caught bobbing and then get his head bounced off the campus until he lost consciousness.

Silva ended up looking the fool, but he wasn't being that much of an idiot. Weidman had taken him down and dominated him for most of the first until he went for the kneebar and allowed Silva to escape. Sillva started clowning then, and with good reason and effect. Silva was giving Weidman such big openings on the feet that he could'd pass them up and work for the takedown. That's high risk, high reward. Anderson had a better chance to win the fight on the feet than on his back, So he was keeping the fight on the feet which ended up making it much better for him. But the thing is, leaving yourself that open means just one mistake (or in this case Weidman being smart enough to double up) and it's over.

It was a good fight until it ended, the clowning was definitely tactical, and Weidman did a great job of cutting through it.

When he stood up after getting taken down, Chris landed several flush shots to Anderson's face with his hands down. I am pretty sure he let Chris hit him.

He was clearly letting Chris hit him....there's no denying that.

He stood there with his hands down, not moving his head, patting his chin. Its ludicrous to say otherwise.

I have no delusions about this fight. I take nothing away from Weidman. It was impressive that he didn't get pysched out by Anderson. He did what he had to do and he won fair and square.

That doesn't change the fact that Anderson was acting like an idiot. If he hadn't fought that way, he'd still be the champ.

If anyone has delusions, its you. You're blinded by hate.

I'm not at all claiming that Anderson took a dive so that part isn't relevant.

It might be true that Anderson uses his clowning to get into people's heads, but he only does that against guys he doesn't take seriously. If you look at his best opponents, he hasn't done that with any of them.

The fact of the matter is, he wasn't respecting Chris and Chris made him pay. I'm not taking anything away from Weidman. He punched Anderson in the face when he was fooling around which is exactly what every other opponent should have done. Most of them were too scared of the counter to make a serious effort at it. Chris wasn't shaken.

That doesn't change the fact that Anderson lost because of poor tactics. If he fought Chris again, and fought him seriously (the way he fought Belfort, Hendo, Marquadt, Lutter, Franklin2X, Yushin Okami, Chael 1x) then he will win. No question in my mind.

So ya, chris won for sure. But Anderson also lost the fight for himself. I voted both.

Also, his post was responding to an entirely different point. I'm not talking about just the knock out.

You said Anderson wasn't letting him hit him. That he was clowning like he always does. That simply isn't true. He usually doesn't stick his chin out and let people punch him, except against Weidman and Bonnar (which shows you what he thought of Chris.)

ummm he did basically NOTHING against belfort. i just watched that fight and they circled for what seemed like forever threw a kick and it was done. Didnt really showcase any skill there if you ask me. it was a quick KO



this debate is getting ridiculous. sparky said it best. i shouldnt even bother.


you hang from Silva's nuts. And I from Fedor's. theres no changing that






EDIT

The reason i said respond to ncordless was because he specifically stated Anderson wasnt acting like that much of an idiot. And YOU said if he hadnt acted like such an idiot he would have won



sooooo yeah it was the same point

Sorry but I disagree. I've been heavily critical of him in not only this fight, but others as well.

I think it is a respect issue, despite what Chris says.

If this was JUST tactics, he would do it against the dangerous guys to. And he doesn't.

I'm a lot less of fan after that fight than I was before. As soon as I saw him start to clown I was yelling at the TV. He fucked around and he paid for it. Again, the dude pissed me off and I'm glad he got knocked out.

We don't disagree that he should be criticized. Your criticism just frankly isn't realistic (IMO.) ;)
