First, Weidman doesn't have the length JBJ does. Also, JBJ won the standup in that round before the takedown by switching stances to close distance(something Weidman most likely won't be able to do). Also, Machida has improved his offensive game and defensive game since the JBJ match.

Lol and Weidman showed holes in his game the first fight with Anderson. Why do you think weidmans coaches had Chris work on defending leg kicks for his 2nd match? Numb nuts

How does Mousasi have anything to do with it? I'm no Mousasi fan, I fully expected him to lose and I personally found his war wagon leading up to the Machida fight to be astonishingly stupid and unfounded. But everything in the post you quoted was accurate.

Please show me one gif of Anderson doing anything effective.

People like to point out how these wins were "lucky" yet Anderson didn't do shit in either fight.

I can't remember a Silva fight where he didnt do significant damage in 15 minutes.
