    If Anderson lost to Diaz in this fight would you feel it was a bigger upset than when he lost to Weidman the first time?

    i would. then again, i picked weidman to beat silva both times, so that wasnt a surprise.

    i dont think nick has a chance vs silva, so if he won, that would surprise me. and i'm a nick diaz fan.

    Yep. Weidman bad style matchup for Silva, many people believed the Chris would win (not me). Diaz victory would literally mean THE END

    Weidman was always a nightmare matchup for Silva, Diaz isn't.

    Always thought Weidman would win, horrible match up for Silva.

    I do not for a second think Diaz will win, easy match up for Silva.



    Obviously Diaz is a way bigger upset.

    Anderson was the GOAT and p4p #1 at the time of the Weidman fight. He had showed no signs of decline.

    Now he's lost twice in a row, and he's having his comeback after a gruesome injury.


    Saying that a loss vs Diaz is as big of an upset as that against Diaz is flat out wrong and pure hindsight.

    It isn't.

    Agree. Would immediately enter all greatest upset lists. Anyone know the betting line?

    It's a fairly significant upset. Not GSP vs. Serra territory by any means but ..
