Jack Slack: Reflections on Silva - Weidman 1

Would Silva Have Caught Weidman in the End?

Silva's strength in the Octagon has been his use of distance, his low hands to prevent takedowns, and his ability to convince opponents to overextend. Now, assuming his style remains that of the brilliant, baiting counter fighter, will Silva be able to pull it off tomorrow night? Or put anther way: How close was Silva to getting Weidman riled up before the knockout last time?

For all of Weidman's discipline throughout the first fight, there is no denying that the combo that knocked out Anderson Silva was sloppy and wild. In fact, Weidman actually chased Silva with the finishing combination, something he was not supposed to do, and was pretty clearly reaching wildly for the champion with the right backfist. Notice how his head comes well forward of his hips and his chin is exposed. Nothing like the upright, pressuring style he had employed so successfully up to that point.

I believe that Silva got frustrated with his missed attempts at an early KO and got just as frustrated as weidman, I don't think Silva will be alloying his emotions to dictate his reactions this time.

Pssh poor Jack Slack didnt get the memo from Silva fanboys that Silva doesnt keep his hands down to prevent the TD.

Hope the Silva fanboys eventually teach Jack Slack and Weidman's striking coaches that they just don't know anything about fighting. Only the great and mighty Silva fans know what's going on in that cage.

Oh also Jack doesnt know that Silva just didnt ever feel threatened by Weidman's striking. Silva doesnt play mind games, he presents his emotions in the cage and would never put up a facade to make people believe that he has everything under control.
