    From being unbeaten for 7 years to 0-3-0-1 in his last 4 fights.

    In all fairness, the Weidman thing should have been a NC. If you break your leg engaged in your own kick, how is that worthy of the other person being given a victory. Weidman didn't have a special technique, he checked it like everyone else does. I'm not even an Anderson fan, I loved seeing him get knocked out acting like a fool, but I'm also reasonable.

    Same thing happened to Fedor pretty much, but at least Fedor didn't have the banned substances scandal. :\ It is quite sad though.

    It happens to every fighter who stays in the game for too long.

    Weedman should have been a NC. He beat Bisping and beat Nick.

    Also you can't be champion as one-dimensional fighter for long...


    Only in 2000s UFC MW division - worst division in history of MMA.

    beat diaz, beat the crap of bisping's face, not bad for a 40 year old guy who can't get erection and broke his shin bone

    Most likely this is the end of his career. Still didn't look too bad for a man that age with his fighting style.

    Anyone expecting Anderson to come storming back to win the MW title was deluding himself. He was quite hittable tonight and he was rocked a couple times and even knocked down by Bisping of all people.

    It's called getting old and getting KO'd.

    And he has lost them all by his own doing, its crazy.

    *Goofs against Weidman
    *Breaks his own leg in rematc, fluke injury
    *Diaz win overturned
    *Gave the fight to Bisping

    He's lost but hes never not seemed like the better, more dangerous fighter.

    Wow, looking through that list, Anderson may have indeed been overrated. He has that one nice front kick to the face, which Machida has also pulled off

    Been a great career, he should either retire or get a rematch with bisping then retire.

    No decline

    Bisping beats any version of Anderson.

    It's just what god says
