Sincerely doubt it. He won't clown around like the last time, he'll be focused and lethal.

If everything is under control, you're going too slow.

AS is getting his belt back and he will only need 2 rounds to do so. He is not making the same mistake twice.

I can't tell who will win at this point, but I feel very confident the TS is completely and utterly wrong.

As a man believes in his heart, so he is.

Please get off weidman's nuts for a minute sir.

Andy will not be subbed at all and Chris is gonna gas in the third due to over trying while Anderson plays him all night.

I think Silva's emotions will be all over him in this fight. He's still gonna show boat and all that for many different reasons. Not sure how it'll play out, but I predict Anderson is gonna do whatever he can to show striking dominance.

I think people are going overboard with the keeping hands low to prevent the TD thing.

First of all, he is capable of dropping his hands very quickly to avert a TD, or at least try to do that. Certainly faster than any wrestler can shoot. He can be wrestled down from a Greco clinch though.

Next off, I don't think that he kept his hands low because he was terrified of another TD. It didn't look like Chris had much left to even get another one. He kept them low to put on a show and also to bait Chris so he could try to make him look stupid.
It didn't work out and he got knocked out.

anderson will be on his back in 30seconds. he will gass in 2nd round due to his lack of conditioning and wiedman will win any way he wants once again.

Wideman is a horrible matchup for Silva.

I thought Silva would take it last time due to Wideman's long layoff. And we all saw how that shit turned out.

Now he's got a KO victory over him, AND the belt.

The odds may be in silva's favor due to his long career and many victories, but Wideman is STILL a horrible matchup for Silva.
