People don't understand how hard it is to keep motivated and be in the spotlight for so long and spending countless hours in the gym and doing a bunch of other things. After years and years it wears you out mentally and physically. It's an accomplishment in itself to last as long as Anderson has. And be champion for most of his career.

Look at GSP , he's going crazy at the moment and he's only 32.

I woudn't be surprised if he retires after this fight, but I don't think he will do it by giving a sub-par performance.
I see Anderson crushing Weidman this time and then maybe announce retirement.
But with Anderson you never know what is going to happen.

If Chris wasn't undefeated in mma, I doubt you'd have the same feelings. I really don't think Anderson views him as unbeatable.

What is a man? A miserable little pile of secrets.

I believe Silva win's this 3 or 4 years ago and I think he definitely has the potential to win now, but I don't believe he wants it - Nor do I believe his head is even seriously in the game anymore.

Even if Silva does win via a TKO - IMO it's going to be down to his talent levels and not the fact that he has this sudden hunger to compete for the belt.

If Weidman destroys Silva like that, why would you want to see Silva fight Jones?

You are making it sound like Anderson is a toddler being told what to do. How long have you been following Anderson exactly? Anderson has been known as a drama queen, telling Dana and the UFC just what he thought. Anderson does what Anderson wants, although I do think Anderson himself usually doesn't know what he wants.
Thanks Sigmund lol
