No. He got lucky that anderson was tired of fighting. Chris gets tooled hard in the rematch.

Not true.

- did not check any legkicks throughout and was getting lashed with them
- has admitted he got annoyed by Silva's taunting and strayed away from the gameplan his team laid out for him (an error in judgement neutralized by Silva waving his head around like a leaf in the breeze and teeing up the perfect punching opportunity)
- seemed to visibly tire after the 1st round

Weidman fought a very, very good fight and did many good things... but perfect? Laughable. Chris himself and Ray Longo are well aware that he was far from perfect.
This. I would say the argument for it being a lucky shot is as strong as the perfect fight argument. Both are wrong though.
