    which are some of the matchups you feel the guy down 0-2 is still the favorite?

    anderson silva vs weidman comes to mind. anderson lost both fights, but its pretty clear from watching those fights weidman had nothing for him n was gassing out. if not for goofing n freak injury anderson wouldve made a quick work of weidman. in 3rd fight anderson doesnt clown around n likelihood of that same injury is next to impossible. weidman would probably control 1st 2 rounds like he did in 1st 2 fights, but then anderson will figure out his timing n finish him with a tko.

    another one is bendo vs pettis. 1st fight was close n many felt bendo won, but pettis got the nod thanks to that fancy kick. in the 2nd fight pettis pulled the once in a life time fluke sub out his ass vs bjj blackbelt. in the 3rd fight bendo would simply control him with his superior wrestling n theres no way pettis pulls that sub again.


    honorable mention big nog vs mir

    this one is more of a stretch especially now with nogs condition.

    in 1st fight nog was dealing with an illness n was literally a zombie in the cage. in the 2nd fight he was picking mir apart on the feet n got too eager n decided to take it to the mat. if nog kept it standing he wouldve finish mir. in the 3rd nog would outstrike mir n bully him against the cage (mirs weakness).

    Ortiz Liddell 3

    Edit: I was wrong, Ortiz guillotined Bader way after Chuck Tito 3 was supposed to be scheduled

    Epic bullshit.

    Anderson is now light years from his prime and would post a decisive loss to Weidman at last if they fought again, no clowning and presumably no injuries.

    Pettis is just better than Bendo and finishes him again.

    Nog is beyond shot. He's Swiss cheese.

    I see none of these people who are 0-2 against these opponents as favorites in a third fight. Bendo would be the closest though.
     
  8. Lol at Nog and Anderson. C'mon.

    That's a good answer. But, nowadays? I dunno.

    I don't understand how everyone doesn't see this.

    Anderson obviously takes Weidman 10/10 in rematches.

    You actually believe that Anderson is a favourite in his third match with Weidman?

    Oh wow. Now that's some heavy delusion right there.

    It was a noble effort to disguise the butthurt.
