Yeah great analysis. Spot on about Weidman's deft head movement and covering up but exposing the body.

This is probably a common thing in mma striking though. Body shots are highly under-utilized.

Thank you Dicipulus on a great thread. Very informative, I love these breakdowns. Feel free to post more; we need more of this shit on sherdog, as opposed the the

"Peter North vs. Ron Jeremy: Who Takes it?" threads

Hahaha. This is a joke If you knew the technical reasons you'd provide them.

Absolutely no one is going to take you seriously here.

But what I said was true. Weidman won round 1 of the first fight, obviously. But in round 2 Silva stuffed his TDs easily, was avoiding Weidman's strikes well, and lighting him up with low kicks. The momentum was clearly on Anderson's side and Weidman appeared to be tiring (though I can't say this for certain, but his TD certainly seemed less powerful).

Anderson then went full-you-know-what and got what he deserved - perhaps the most humiliating KO in UFC history.

Second fight was pure dominance by Weidman in every area and even if not for the broken leg Anderson would likely have been finished, on the ground or feet.

But this is only relevant in terms of analyzing the Machida fight, there would be no point bringing it up otherwise. I'm just saying, we have very limited tape on Weidman, and there's only three fights of his where he really became elite - but Munoz gets run over too much to read anything into that other than Chris being elite, which we already knew. The first Silva fight really doesn't tell us much at all, other than Weidman having huge power in his hands.

So the second Silva fight is all we're really left with.

That makes trying to predict what will happen vs. Machida very difficult.
Nothing in this analysis is that of importance, ideas are based on lazy generalizations.
