Not really, give Silva 30 minutes to fight off his back and he wouldn't do as much damage as this . You can't really compare bottom strikes to standing strikes. If you're talking about superficial damage, sure, but Andy would never have rocked Weidman from the bottom like Machida did a few times.

If Weidman ends up like that vs. Vitor he's going OUT COLD.

some of you silva nuthuggers are just ridiculous.

silva gave weidman a small bloody nose. I get bloody noses from straining too hard from taking shits.....

machida rocked weidman and had him in somewhat trouble.

Are you really grasping at a bloody nose?

i think Anderson's power is underestimated... I remember the Irvin fight... I was thinking ok... yeah he stopped him.. .HOLY SHIT HE SLICED HIS EYE OPEN!!!

he hit Forrest while back peddling and leaning backwards and knocked him out.. i mean...

his earlier volume of punches is always deadly... and most def puts people in trouble... but I think his power is underrated due to his ridiculous precision

AS is a relatively skinny fighter... accuracy is obviously his main strength..

Yeah...I was surprised when I saw the stats for round 1 strikes and sig strikes were pretty much even.
