I love it how this was the first reply to the thread, perfectly explaining what the whole situation was about, and we still get five pages of people questioning Weidman's 'weak mental game'.

That's Sherdog for you, baby.

This is a little more on a limb, but when GSP vacated his title...

The thought occurred to me that Silva accepted the Weidman rematch under the agreement that he doesn't want the belt and would vacate it if he wins.

It's funny if you even look at the pic from the first fight when Silva shares the belt with Weidman... Chris is totally awestruck holding UFC gold and having his hands on the belt, but touching the belt just doesn't mean anything to Silva anymore.

And Silva is an icon in the sport. I thought it was a nice gesture. Besides Chris is going to pound him.

This is possible imo. He said he wanted big fights. Him vs Vitor for the belt in Brazil would be huge. But other than that he would just continue like he did before. And to me it seems like that is not what he wants anymore. It will be interesting to see what happens. Canīt wait!

So he should've known better. He doesn't have the age nor the pedigree to act that way.
I'm loving it so far: acting superior, after fight party scheduled, all the elements in line for a huge wake up call.

He's cocky, like Anderson was. Hasn't Weidman learned anything about being cocky from his first win? Don't make Silva angry dude.

Was not trolling ..

They all have better win / Loss records and Better wins against better competitors then Anderson .

Anyone who disagrees that Fedor , GSP and Jones are better fighters and have better Legacy's then Anderson are simply Blinded by their own admiration for him.

Anderson is great .. But Weidman and the New MW breed such as Jacare are just Greater . Age caught up with him .. He had an amazing Run . Respect for that.
