    I say fluke knee because it was only because Bisping was looking at the ref, Herb who was picking up the mouthguard, and coming over, looking like he was going to give it to Bisping. Bisping then gets kneed in the face while looking at Herb.

    Bisping came into round 4 wobbly and flat footed. I thought he was about to trip on his feet. Prior to that knee he was looking sharp, even in the beating he took in the last 30 seconds, he still would arguably winning the round, and definitely would have come into the 4th sharp were it not for the knee.

    Silva knee something was going on, Bisping was looking and talking to the ref, signaling that he had no mouthguard. The ever respectful Anderson just kept going. Anderson is no idiot, he knows when he'll land shots when the opponent is looking at him. He will of course know when he'll land shots when the opponent is NOT looking at him.

    Silva deserves both the judging loss and moral loss in my opinion.

    I'd normally agree with you and I do think it was a cheap shot, but he was looking to win any way possible, and in that split second he forewent morality for victory.

    Anderson almost tore his face off.

    What did Bisping do outside of that fluke knockdown?

    Is true. Other than the knee (and the circumstances surrounding it) Bisping would have had a clean decision victory.

    Not Silva's fault Bisping was looking for his damn mouthpiece while his opponent was attacking.

    Why the fuck are Anderson's fights so bizarre. Weidman 1, Weidman 2, Diaz.... and now this. Weird as fuck

    He knocked him down twice. The only beating Silva put on Bisping was after the knee. And like I said, it was clearly because of the knee because Bisping was wobbly as fuck after it.

    So, it's Silva's fault that Bisping looked at the ref instead of the guy he's actually fighting? I'd chalk that up to low fight IQ from Bisping.

    He looked fine to me after the knee. Anderson basically stopped fighting after the knee, he was defensive from that point on. Bisping didn't do shit, no power strikes, no damage, nothing. If the fight goes on a couple more rounds Bisping's skin would have fallen off his face.

    Silva CLEARLY knew something was up. It was a dick move to hit him when he was clearly looking to the ref saying his mouthguard was out. He chose to keep hitting him because he knew he was losing the fight and could only win taking advantage of Bisping's inattention. Silva nuthuggers said in the first Weidman fight that Weidman won off a fluke by taking advantage of Silva's fooling around. Now we get Silva doing nothing for 3 rounds, only catching Bisping because his mouthguard fell out, and now saying that Silva deserved to win. If it weren't for the mouthguard incident it would have been 1,2,3,4, if not 5 as well, since the concussion is what made Bisping look so wobbly in the 4th and 5th.

    Isn't that the reason Silva lost the first match against Weidman, Silva not really fighting? Silva fans make up your mind. You can't have it both ways.

    If you think the third round was a 10-8 for Silva, how do you score the second round ? 10-6 for Bisping ?

    Silva got KO'd because he got hit in the face hard.

    Yea, I'm just getting the vibe around here that a lot of people thinking that the 1st Weidman match was a fluke, don't see anything wrong with the knee (There wasn't, it was Bispings fault, like you said).
