Anyone else fell Silva lost it, oppose to Weidman winning?

Silva was stuffing some of the takedowns and could land strikes at any point he wanted to. The clowning and over confidence finally bit Silva in the *** but even then I didn't think Weidman possessed much of a threat. Weidman was suppose to win due to his wrestling, not by strikes, which makes it even more surprising that he won the way he did.

Amazing how many people on this forum are coming up with excuses for why Anderson lost...

Kind of like when Fedor started losing, or perhaps when Cain shellacked Junior the second time they fought.

Weidman was the better fighter tonight. Silva used that clowning around crap on multiple occasions and he paid for it. Would he have won if he were more focused? Guess it doesn't matter because he got his lights punched out by a wrestler...

If Anderson "chose" to lose is this really how he would do it, by embarassing the hell out of himself? I think if he really wanted to lose, it would be to a fellow Brazilian like Vitor and not to an American fighter with only 9 fights.

If a rematch occurs and Weidman wins again in some fashion, what will the excuses be that time?

Weidman was never in danger at any point in that fight. To me it looked like Anderson had nothing for Weidman except for clowning him.

I don't see how stuffing a couple of take-downs = Anderson was going to win.

Its hard to not believe Silva did not throw that fight. He could have won that match easily. What I dont understand is why are the is announcers during the post fight show acting like Wiedman went in their dominated and knocked Silva out. Anderson just stood there and took hits

I felt tat ANderson got frustrated that weidman wasnt taking the bait and was trying his best to get weidman to over extend. Weidman wouldnt fight Silvas fight.

Anderson destroys Weidman in a rematch. He started picking Weidman apart at the end of the first round

Actually Weidmans fist won it when he bounced Silvas face off the mat.

First round he got taken down and nearly subbed.

Second round he stuffed 1 half hearted takedown and attempted to clown only to get KTFO.

Weidman is the champ buddy believe it.

Not me. Chris beat him. Anderson is great, but Chris beat him tonight.
